Just over a week ago, some very sad news broke when Zachary Winston, the brother of Michigan State All-American guard Cassius Winston, died after being hit by a train.
Since Zachary’s death, Cassius has played in all three Spartans’ games, including in a 94-46 home win on Monday night over Charleston Southern.
Following the game, Cassius took the mic to thank the fans and his Michigan State teammates for their support during this most difficult time.
