  Dee Brown starts BTPOY Campaign
Dee Brown almost single-handedly defeated the Michigan State Spartans last night in Champaign. He poured in a career high 34 points on 12-22 shooting, nearly outscoring MSU's high-flying trio of Ager, Brown and Davis by himself. Thus begins his campaign to repeat as Big Ten Player of the Year.

When asked about the play of Dee Brown against his team, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said: "I thought we faced Vince Young tonight, to tell you the truth," Izzo said, comparing Brown to the Texas quarterback who led the Longhorns to the national championship. "This was a Dee Brown night. He won the Heisman tonight. There were at least four shots I said, 'I'm glad he's taking that shot.'
