Re: Russia 93 - Michigan State 75: ISH Trolls Exposed Again
Not that I think MSU is better than Russia, but there are some key dynamics to understand about this MSU team.
They lost two of their top 3 scorers from last season due to graduation, and are still finding an identity. They're leaning heavily on Denzel Valentine and Erron Harris is playing his first competitive games in over year due to transfer rules and he's supposed to be the key to their backcourt.
This team will look much different as the season goes on and each of them understand their roles better. They play the Italian team tomorrow so we'll see if they're getting better. They did beat another pro team in Florence.
