As for the game....I give State about a 45% chance of winning it. Not gonna give them a 50/50 shot just because they have proven they can lose against good teams on the road in the Big 10. They aren't good enough where I can assume they will beat a slightly lesser team on the road (although they might be getting there). A great shot, ya, but they shouldn't be favorites.
I hope with State's perimeter defense this year they can continue your scoring problems. Even if Leonard gets his. Great man to man defense and control the rebounds.
Well as I originally said I think if u win it'll be because of your perimeter guys. I hope we come out and demolish them and own the paint. Then I can come in here and be like whaatttttttt. Here's to hoping.
