The Michigan State Spartans have a difficult and eventful schedule for their basketball team this upcoming season. They'll play games in Germany and Jenison Fieldhouse, and they've got a full slate of nonleague play. The game in Germany is the season opener at the Ramstein Air Base on Nov. 9 against Connecticut.
