Michigan State's Roe Playing Hurt On Bad Right Knee
April 2, 2010
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Michigan State's run to the Final Four has been filled with player injuries.
Forward Delvon Roe is playing on a bad right knee, pushing through excruciating pain every day as the Spartans prepare for Butler in Saturday night's semifinal.
Coach Tom Izzo and point guard Korie Lucious call him a warrior. Roe has refused surgery, saying he wants to help his team win a national title after falling to North Carolina in last year's championship game.
He says a championship would make the pain worth it.
