By the time Cassius Winston steps onto the court for warmups, his intention is simple. He’s already eaten, showered and spent 20 minutes in what Michigan State players call “the boots” — giant recovery devices they strap around their legs — so now all that’s left is this time for tension relief. He takes crazy shots, has some fun and lets any sense of nervousness ooze out until there’s none left.

Tom Izzo’s Spartans are charging along with confidence and purpose. There are major differences between this year’s team and the team from last year that was supposedly destined for achievements that ultimately were out of reach. The dynamics that surround this year’s team make it possible for those achievements to be reached this time around.

Changes are underway. At least on Michigan State football’s coaching staff. Whether they result in more points, yards and consistency for the Spartans won’t be known until they kick off against Tulsa on Aug. 30. But the obvious offseason priority remains overhauling the offense. That is a bit more intricate than simply installing an entirely new playbook, and it will likely be a collaborative effort between new offensive coordinator Brad Salem and head coach Mark Dantonio.

Michigan State basketball’s transition game continues to produce at levels Tom Izzo called “lethal.” Yes, the Hall of Fame coach also admits his Spartans are beginning to feel the physical effects of pushing the ball at a breakneck pace. But when No. 6 MSU gets out and runs at its best, it can consistently punish an opponent. Like it did to No. 13 Maryland on Monday night.

For the first time in at least a couple of weeks, the injury news around Michigan State is starting to become less grim. The sixth-ranked Spartans knocked off No. 13 Maryland, 69-55, on Monday night at the Breslin Center, and they had the benefit of doing so with junior guard Kyle Ahrens back in the lineup. It was his first game back after missing the previous two games with a back injury.

In between prepping for the Warhawks in Michigan State’s first home game of a holiday tournament, Izzo was working back channels, calling Steve Kerr and some of Green’s closest confidants to glean if one of his all-time favorite former players had made a mistake, lost his cool and possibly crossed the line. More than anything, Izzo wanted to make sure that Green was mentally and spiritually intact.
