MSU played 3 less games and had more steals.
So MSU had more steals is less games and it took more games for Kentucly to create 1 less turnover, right?

It is ALWAYS a great day to be a Spartan!!!!
My point was MSU turns the ball over a lot, in fact in turnover margin MSU last year ranked 200th in Div 1. Kentucky ranked 166.
MSU turned the ball over 483 times in 37 games. UK turned the ball over 466 times in 40 games with mostly kids who had never played together before
My point that MSU turns the ball over a lot remains... Ranked 200 isn't a good stat, and I bet if you go back and look year in year out, that turnover stat is always poor.
Like I said its usually offset by great rebounding. Just seems like attention to the turnovers would provide even more upside potential, but what do I know
Late model naturally aspirated Subarus?
Kentucky blocks shots and plays at a faster tempo and still ranked better( though terrible itself) in turnover margin. So they had more ways to get more possessions
Ranked 200th is sloppy for a well drilled team like MSU
Just surprised that never gets addressed
What are the 3 non conference losses? UConn only has those guards, Payne and Nix should dominate. UConn is picked 14th in their conference and 108th in the country. They can lose to Kansas, but Kansas has a bunch of unproven youngsters as well. I am not familiar with Miami's roster but I know they are not picked top 3 in the ACC.
That is just it. MSU has most of their turnovers in half court, not fast breaks and it has always been that way.
You're damn right!
Nix will not dominate.
Sloppy half court execution. As it is a year in year out thing, it's likely the design of the sets and not the kids.
The rebounding and solid defense are enough to offset set it with the talent level we generally have. But it's an area that would provide a lot of upside were it given attention
We keep waiting, but have either of our bigs ever dominated a game when the opposing center was taller than 6'8"
Payne tore up Sully last year in the game in Columbus
It could be worse. Miami lost to a d2 team tonight.
IIRC, we ran up some huge scores in exhibition games in 2010-2011. Wouldn't put much stock into it.
All I can say is you obviously did not watch UConn without Calhoun coaching them. They have zero bigs that can hurt us. Drummond their center last year was a lottery pick and plays for the Pistons. MSU bigs should dominate and we will wear their guards down with our depth.
