2. Every starter scores in double figures
Hopefully Michigan State won’t need Tyson Walker to put the team on his back en route to another 30-point game because we’ve learned that when that happens, it’s not always good for the Spartans. In fact, Michigan State is now just 3-3 when Walker scores at least 30 points in a single game. He needs some help.
After a disappointing performance on Monday, the rest of the starters will step up and take some of the pressure off the national player of the year candidate.
The aforementioned AJ Hoggard will scored 14 points, Walker will finish with 15, Malik Hall will reach 10, Jaden Akins will have 16, and even Mady Sissoko will score 11.
All of the starters will be in double figures on Thursday, showing that the potential is there.
We may never see another 1-for-20 performance from three again (knock on wood) and Michigan State will do its best to prove that Monday was a fluke.
