Denzel Valentine posts touching message after final game in East Lansing

Michigan State, ranked no. 2 in the country, has given fans a lot to cheer about this season, and senior Denzel Valentine has been a big reason for their enthusiasm.

The Spartans just closed out their regular season campaign for 2015-16, and now set their sights on the Big Ten Tournament. However, Denzel Valentine felt compelled to thank the fans as his season is no longer guaranteed.

Valentine took to Instagram, posting a picture of him kissing center court, which made the rounds in several media outlets.

Valentine also guaranteed a championship for this year’s NCAA Tournament and crazier things have happened not just in past tourneys, but just this season.

Nonetheless, it’s always great to see great players show appreciation for the fans, especially after they’ve supported them for four years. Moreover, players as versatile as Valentine don’t come around every season.
