I’m just a little bitter that hall of fame Izzo found the pairing which ignited the rest of their season due to circumstance rather than keen foresight. Tillman and Winston down the stretch were pretty much unstoppable with the perimeter threats of Goins and McQuaid.
They’re both Michigan kids and Brandon is from East Lansing. You KNOW they want to play really well against these guys! I have a feeling Juwan wants it badly, too! And X, are you kidding me? WOW!!! I just hope we play well and then anything can happen. Is State the favorite, of course they are, but keep it close and…who knows…anything can happen.
He will also be “home” in the sense of the town that he grew up in. Also, I have to believe Johns getting a start against the hometown team that he was “expected” to go to will get him pretty amped for this game. He gets the gravity here
Your not bursting my bubble, no one on the team has really had a good away game period. Johns was at Least aggressive against Illinois and didn’t get much run if I recall. Also I’d counter that he only started to play better against Oregon. There’s only one non home game in there. I don’t think it’s an away from home thing more so as it was he was asleep the first 8-9 games.
I really need to see BJJr step up. I feel like if we’re going to go deep into the dance, we need him to start to be elite. That means making the right choices, grabbing rebounds, driving the ball and making layups.
Everyone gonna have to do their part, play clean, drive the ball well and then be able to open up 3pt opps for Baby Doe. X will probably have to make a couple 3s himself.
MSU starting to hit their stride. They demolished Illinois.
Don’t think we win this one, but who knows. If we lose by single digits, it wont be a failure, especially when road wins are extremely tough to come by.
