Before Sunday’s game tips off at 2 p.m. Eastern Time, take a look back at Michigan State’s previous game on Dec. 29. 2021, an 81-68 victory against Tubby Smith’s High Point Panthers, through the lens of Marvin Hall — The Only Colors’ photographer.
Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo was not thrilled with the Spartans’ performance against a feisty High Point team. However, MSU was playing shorthanded, as four players — center Marcus Bingham Jr., shooting guard Max Christie, guard/forward Pierre Brooks II and walk-on guard Steven Izzo — missed the game due to COVID-19 issues.
The Panthers actually led the Spartans at halftime by a score of 35-34, but Michigan State outscored High Point 47-33 in the second half. Forward Joey Hauser (17 points, 11 rebounds and three assists) and forward Gabe Brown (a career-high 24 points with seven rebounds) helped propel the Spartans to victory.
