Michigan State's Travis Trice suffers head injury

Christopher Hanewinckel-US PRESSWIRE

Michigan State backup guard Travis Trice may miss some time after suffering another head injury, his second of the season.

Michigan State Spartans guard Travis Trice suffered an apparent head injury on Thursday against Illinois, and "could be out for a while," head coach Tom Izzo told MLive's Diamond Leung.

Trice took a knee to the head from an Illinois player in the first half and was held out for the remainder of the game. Trice went 0 for 2 from the field and 0 for 1 at the free throw line in 11 minutes of action as the Spartans fell down by 10 points early.

With Trice sidelined, Michigan State embarked on a 14-0 run out of the break and ended up dispatching of the Illini, 80-75, thanks to a 53-point second half.

Trice, a sophomore out of Huber Heights, Ohio, is averaging 5.8 points and 2.1 assists off the bench for the No. 13 Spartans. He missed time earlier this season after suffering a concussion in Michigan State's season-opening loss to UConn, and was force to wear a mask upon his return.
