2. Jaxon Kohler flirts with a double-double
A year ago, Jaxon Kohler had his best game as a Spartan against Rutgers, scoring 12 points with 11 rebounds in a 70-57 win over a ranked Scarlet Knights team. He also added three blocks, showing that he could do damage on both ends of the floor.
Well, he's finally back after missing the first two months of the season and he's played a whopping four minutes through his first two games and I think we're going to see that number skyrocket on Sunday as the Spartans are desperately searching for any semblance of offense from the post players. It hasn't come from Mady Sissoko or Carson Cooper, so it may as well be Kohler's turn.
After showing that he could be a threat last season against this very team, we're going to see him break out for the first time as a sophomore to the tune of 14 points and nine rebounds, coming just one board shy of that elusive double-double.
This will hopefully show Tom Izzo that Kohler is ready for Big Ten play and he deserves more minutes in the post.
