Just did a quick check on bbstate.com ($): MSU’s 31 assists vs. UWGB are tied for the 7th best performance in college basketball this season. And all the teams ahead of or tied with them scored more points than MSU’s 93–so it was an amazing passing performance relative to scoring output.
Izzo video clip: “I want utopia.”
MSU is up to #6 in both polls, following Dayton’s upset of Pittsburgh. Wisconsin is back in both top 25’s after beating Texas on the road (without Trevon Hughes, no less). After MSU/IU/Wisconsin, no Big Ten team received even a single vote in either poll.
Via the Detroit Tigers Weblog (Official Favorite Sports Blog of the Spartans Weblog), check out UM Hoops–the first hoops-only Michigan blog. Nice to have a Wolverine blog out there not so obsessed with that game with the pointy-ended ball.
As I noted in the previous comment section, I’ve realized this blog will actually be out of commission for the first THREE conference games. Not the best way to get a sports blog rolling, eh? But I’ll have some posts up this week before I depart for warmer environs. Planning to get a numbers-based conference preview up tomorrow or Wednesday.
