CHICAGO – They're doing it all together, Matt McUway and Kyle Arens. Two Michigan state Spartans who arrived in East Lansing four years ago.

This happens when you're roommates and when you play in the same basketball college.

"When one of us gets home at night and the other is not in the crib, we hit the other up:" Hey, where are you? "Or, hey, do you want to eat something?"
