or - Kenny "the former walk on" Goins as the announcers refer to him.


Michigan State basketball doesn't need 5-star center. It has Kenny Goins


That’s Goins. A player who grew up dreaming of wearing green and white, who turned down Division 1 offers to walk on in East Lansing, who arrived with a like of the game, not a love. 


Or at least a love he didn’t know was possible. For it's only when you truly love the game that you give yourself to it. Instilling that into his players may be Izzo’s greatest gift. It doesn’t always work. But when it does, well …  

“I love to see guys that didn’t put in the time all the time, and then the light bulb goes on and you see Cassius defending or Kenny making some plays that he hasn’t … (Or) Nick (Ward) not getting frustrated. You see the growth. For a coach or a parent that’s an awesome feeling.”
