SITM: interview w/ MSU basketball great Paul Davis; Spartan Mag's Paul Konyndyk previews MSU-Purdue, NFL/B10 picks

The www.a2iwheelandtire.com / @a2iwheels guestline presents Michigan State basketball legend Paul Davis and Paul Konyndyk of Spartan Mag during Friday’s episode of Sports in the Mitten with Adam Biggers and John Gustin.

Joining us from Moscow, Davis, the Spartans’ No. 6 all-time rebounder and No. 9 scorer, discusses how Tom Izzo pushed him to his limits, which led to a never-say-die attitude on and off the court. Davis speaks of his personal journey, but also lets us know why MSU basketball is so successful. Spoiler: Izzo hasn’t lost his fire, that’s why.

Adam interviewed Paul earlier in the day, and there will be a feature on Bleacher Report that details how Davis continues conquering injury and playing the game he loves at a high level for Khimki, one of Europes’s biggest clubs.

As usual, Konynydyk gives us the scoop on Michigan State’s next game—this time it’s Purdue, which hosts one of the hottest teams in the country. From “home-run threats” in the backfield to track stars at other positions, the Boilers should put up a fight in West Lafayette.

John gives us his NFL picks for this weekend, while Adam runs through the Big Ten and breaks down Michigan vs. Penn State.
