At the sports desk: favorite teams update

Michigan State's men's hoops team lost, shockingly, at home to Northwestern, 70-63.
Too many turnovers, not enough intensity. In today's Division I college basketball, that's an easy recipe for a loss, even at home. There's so much parity. Ask Wake Forest.

The Detroit Pistons though won their second straight, defeating the Toronto Raptors.
Former starter Richard Hamilton is now coming off the bench. Seems like it might work--this might give the Pistons more firepower off the bench, and keep them going in the second and third quarters. We'll see.
