Tom Izzo recaps Purdue loss, status of Eron Harris

NCAA Basketball: Florida Gulf Coast at Michigan State Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan State suffered a brutal loss at Purdue in more ways than one.

Not only was it one of the worst outings we’ve seen from the young Spartans in Big Ten play, but they also lost senior guard Eron Harris to a scary knee injury.

After the game, head coach Tom Izzo recapped the ugly performance and offered some strong support for Harris, who looks like he could be out for the rest of the season.

“The saddest part for me, No. 1, he’s a senior, No. 2, I’ve been saying this for the last three weeks, I think he’s one that’s spent the most time in the gym, he’s been coming in the most, he’s been watching the most film,” Izzo said after the loss. “He’s tried to be a better leader. I’ve been hard on Eron, I’ve been good with Eron, I couldn’t ask for anything more than he’s given me this last month. So that saddens me the most, if it’s an extended injury.”
