CORAL CABLES, Fla. — This is the absolute best-case scenario for Michigan State.
Gary Harris and Travis Trice don’t look like they’ve missed a beat coming back from injury.
Both have hit 3-pointers, back-to-back, no less. Harris has five rebounds, unafraid to mix it up inside. And, the most promising sign, his dive on the floor after a loose ball late in the first half. He didn’t seem to hesitate or hold back.
Spartans lead Miami 31-27. They’d be trailing if not for this pair.
Keith Appling got six minutes of rest and you’re starting to see the makings of an ideal rotation — though one that barely includes Russell Byrd.
Byrd played a team-low 2 minutes in the first half, missing his only 3-point attempt.
