The #11 Michigan State Spartans are heading into the 2018-2019 season with their usual high expectations.  Certainly, the Spartans will have to deal with the loss of two lottery picks in Miles Bridges to the Charlotte Hornets and Memphis Grizzlies and Jaren Jackson, Jr. and their captain Tum Tum Nairn.

But the Spartans are not in bad shape.  In fact, Spartan Nation believes that even with the loss of two NBA lottery picks, the sum of the Spartans parts in 2018-2019 could be better than last season.  Spartan Nation caught up with Spartan WING Kyle Ahrens at Moneyball for the above EXCLUSIVE video.
