EAST LANSING — For all of Michigan State’s remaining flaws, it has several strengths really working for it.
- The ability to turn it up on defense to create a run
The Spartans turned a game in which they trailed 39-38 early in the second half into a 84-61 blowout because of these three elements.
This team is far from consistent, can become sloppy and is capable of a few dry spells offensively. But as long as it keeps playing unselfishly, uses its athletic advantages and plays as aggressively as it did in the second half Saturday, it should have a chance in every Big Ten game it plays.
Good tone setting Big Ten win at home for MSU today.
