It’s likely that the Arizona Wildcats will add Chance Comanche to their exhibition game lineup for Friday’s Armed Forces Classic, but the Michigan State Spartans are getting a player back as well. Tom Izzo says he expects freshman Josh Langford to be back for his team when they play Arizona in Honolulu. Langford, the 20th-ranked player in the 2016 class, did not play in MSU’s exhibitions. "He just brings another dimension to our team," Izzo said. "He can guard a lot of different people -- from 6-8 to 6-foot -- and he has a feel for the game that is very impressive."
