Report: Michigan St. Players Involved in Physical Altercation at Nittany Lion Inn

According to the Centre Country Report, two Michigan State players were involved in a scuffle this morning at the Nittany Lion Inn. University police were called to the scene at 11:11am (my wish came true!). No arrests have been made and the identities of the players involved are unknown at this time. BSD will bring you updates as they come in. Penn State hosts the Spartans tonight at 7:00pm on BTN.

Update (3:38pm):

According to Leung, neither Payne (8.5 ppg, 7.2 rpg) nor Dawson (10.5 ppg, 6.1 rpg) will start tonight, but it sounds like the pair will see the floor in some capacity.

Here is Tom Izzo's full statement on the matter:

"A scuffle that began as two players needling each other resulted in a dented wall. We'll deal with this appropriately, and the players will willingly accept responsibility for paying for any property damage. I've spent my entire afternoon meeting with the players involved and they are both sincerely remorseful. What makes matters even more confusing is that they are off-campus roommates. As a result of their actions neither one will start tonight‘s game."
