OR”How to recap a game you didn’t actually watch.”
1. Embed a graph
Offensive rebounding carries the day again.
2. Cite some statistics from the box score
- Raymar Morgan leads the way with 22 points on 13 FG attempts and 13 rebounds. Five turnovers, though.
- Nine-for-16 three-point shooting for MSU, with Allen, Lucas, Morgan. and Summers all contributing from beyond the arc.
- Six rebounds in 18 minutes for Delvon Roe (four offensively). He must be recovering pretty well from the ankle sprain.,
- Nine-for-29 three-point shooting for the Wildcats. Apparently, MSU forced them into some tough looks from the perimeter.
3. Quote one of your readers
My first impressions: turnovers were the only thing keeping this close in the first half (7 to 2; 6 each in the second half). Rebounding was the big key for us – we had a ton of easy second-chance buckets. The fast break was productive as well. Raymar was an absolute beast – 22 pts on 13 shots (and two FTs), 13 boards (although he also had five turnovers). Lucas went for 17 (albeit on 14 shots and 5 FTs) and 9 assists.
Thanks, SpartanDan et al.
4. Make on obvious observation
Being one of only two teams in the conference with two wins to date–with both of those wins coming on the road–is very encouraging.
Next up: A home game against Ohio State on Tuesday night (7:00, ESPN2).
