MSU on Offense
MSU on Defense
Things to watch for
- MSU is in just about its easiest stretch of the year in conference play while playing its best basketball. While Penn State (H), Rutgers, (A), and Ohio State (H) shouldn't give MSU much if any trouble, can the Spartans keep up the intensity and show up to play for these games? Izzo got on them during the Ohio State game despite winning by 19 because he knows they have bigger goals and they need to be focused at all times.
- Deyonta Davis has struggled offensively as of late and didn't have a good game last time out against Penn State (3-7, 6 points). However, it looks as though he played more at the 5 than at the 4 with Schilling starting at the 4. It'll be a good test to see whether or not he able to give senior Brandon Taylor issues at both ends with his size and length or if Taylor's savvy will be able to overcome it.
MSU has been rolling and Penn State just doesn't have the type of offensive playmakers to keep up.
