      Michigan State's Nix suspended following arrest

      EAST LANSING, Mich. - Michigan State center Derrick Nix has been suspended indefinitely from the basketball team after his arrest early Tuesday on suspicion of operating a vehicle with any presence of drugs and possession of marijuana.



      According to a district court in East Lansing, Nix was arrested about 12:20 a.m. Tuesday. Michigan State coach Tom Izzo says in a statement that Nix's future with the team is in jeopardy.



      Nix averaged 8.1 points this season as a junior and his improvement was a big reason why Michigan State tied for first in the Big Ten and won the conference tournament. The Spartans lost in the NCAA round of 16.
