OT: Sparty busts a move to get point guard.

As a Crusader fan since I am a growed up valpo kid, I was saddened by this turn of events.

According to my local Indiana paper (and a detroit news article), Izzo has tabbed Brandon Wood from Valpo U to fill the void at point.  Wood already graduated from Valpo so academically MSU should be either a breeze or non-issue in his one season of eligibility.  

The articles mention Wood has overcome one knee injury, averaged 16.7 points at Valpo last year, and considered entering the draft or a transfer to TENN.  He was not interested in finishing his career at Valpo because he is looking for a bigger stage.  

Good luck filling Lucus shoes.  Reeks of desperation but probably does at least help Sparty circle the wagons next year.  THoughts?
