EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Top-ranked Michigan State is already dealing with a significant injury.

Guard Joshua Langford had a setback in his return from a foot injury, and coach Tom Izzo says the senior will be re-evaluated in January. Langford played only 13 games last season, averaging 15 points.

An emotional Izzo said Tuesday a problem has surfaced with the same foot. Izzo described the current issue as a stress reaction and said Langford has missed practice time.


Winston, Howard top AP All-America team

Cassius Winston had a long list of accomplishments at Michigan State. He led the Spartans to Big Ten regular-season and tournament titles and into the Final Four. He was the Big Ten player of the year, an Associated Press All-American, one of the nation's best players.

No, 4 Duke expects balanced talent

DURHAM, N.C. (AP) Mike Krzyzewski describes his latest Duke team as old-fashioned - with an emphasis on old.

High expectations for No. 5 Louisville

No. 18 Ohio State hopes to rebound

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) After a disappointing rollercoaster of a season, Ohio State's gifted big man, Kaleb Wesson, explored the possibility of leaving school early for the NBA.

Wesson decided to stay for at least another year and see how far the Buckeyes can go with him and a nationally heralded group of freshmen this time around. And the junior from suburban Columbus got leaner and meaner, taking more than 30 pounds off his 6-foot-9 frame and building muscle. He's down to 255 and says he has more flexibility and stamina than ever.
