Former OC Don Treadwell rejoining Spartans in variety of roles

Former Michigan State offensive coordinator Don Treadwell is returning to the Spartans’ staff.

The school announced Monday that Treadwell will help coach defensive backs and special teams while also serving as an offensive consultant. He’ll also be the team’s freshman head coach — a new role created to support the growth and development of first-year players.

It was defense, coach Luke Walton said. Our defense was awesome tonight. That was the challenge all day to the guys. It doesn’t matter who’s out, how many guys are out, if we defend the way we’re capable and compete on that end of the floor.

The Lakers held Indiana to 38.1 percent shooting, including a miserable 2 of 25 from 3-point range.

We missed shots, turned the ball over and they made shots, Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. That was really the game.

The Lakers first grabbed control in the second quarter. Players took turns aggressively slashing through the lane and then Clarkson got hot, scoring nine points as Los Angeles outscored the Pacers 29-14 in the period.

After discussions with my family and the UM medical staff we have determined that my football career should come to an end, Young said in a statement released by the school. I look forward to getting healthy, working towards my degree and continuing to support my teammates, as I know they will continue to support me.

Young started the last three games of his true freshman season in 2016 and blossomed into one of the ACC’s better defensive backs as a sophomore, recording 43 tackles and picking off two passes.

Young tweeted Saturday suggesting that the injury, which he suffered in the first quarter of the Orange Bowl, would be career ending, and the school confirmed it Sunday, noting he will undergo surgery at the Miami Medical Center.

Suns guard Brandon Knight out for season with torn ACL

Suns point guard Brandon Knight is expected to miss the entire 2017-18 season with a torn ACL, the team announced Tuesday.

The team did not release specifics on how the injury occurred, saying only that it happened last week while Knight was playing in his native South Florida. Suns team physician Dr. Tom Carter diagnosed the injury in Knight’s left knee. Knight will undergo surgery.

The 6-3 point guard averaged a career-low 11.0 points per game in his third full season in Phoenix. He made only five starts, following a campaign that saw him average a career-high 19.6 points per game.

Drafted eighth overall by the Pistons out of Kentucky in 2011, the Suns are Knight’s third NBA stop, following a two-year stint in Milwaukee.

Knight has been the subject of trade rumors in recent months, given his lack of playing time last season and his pricey contract; he’s still owed $44 million over the next three seasons.

If ever a player personified a city and a team, it was Anthony Mason. From his signature designer haircuts, to his hard-nosed, all-up-in-your-face brand of competitiveness, he embodied both style and substance. He spent five of his 13 NBA seasons with the Knicks, helping them win 270 regular season games. He played a pivotal role on the 1993-94 Knicks team, which reached the NBA Finals and lost in seven games to the Rockets. He earned Sixth Man of the Year honors the following season.

The Queens native was New York. He was the Knicks. He was hip-hop.

When he died in 2015 of a massive heart attack at 48 years old, one of the league’s most storied franchises lost a legend. Now his son, Anthony Mason Jr., is bringing the same energy his dad carried to the court to the non-profit sector and fashion industry. It’s become his life’s mission since the former St. John’s standout decided to step away from his own basketball career two years ago.
