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.
