Michigan State basketball: Denzel Valentine, Spartans seniors kiss the floor on senior day

Michigan State held its senior day on Saturday and came away with a resounding 91-76 win over Ohio State.

With the game in hand late, coach Tom Izzo pulled all four of his seniors -- Denzel Valentine, Bryn Forbes, Matt Costello and Colby Wollenman -- from the game to receive a standing ovation from the home crowd. As they each walked off the court and had their names called by the PA announcer, they continued an awesome Michigan State senior tradition and kissed the Spartan logo at halfcourt.

Check out the awesome scene:

This will go down as a legendary Spartan senior class -- they've won 109 games together as a group -- so it's great to see them be able to experience this amazing moment during their last home game.
