Denzel Valentine didn't go out as planned.

The Michigan State senior played his final game for the Spartans on Friday, losing a 90-81 gut-crusher to Middle Tennessee State in the Round of 64.

After the game, Izzo shared a touching message for Valentine. Be warned — it's about to get dusty in here:

Yep. It's just the dust. Don't worry about me. I'm fine.


Dan is on Twitter. The dust will get you.
