The Fighting Irish return two starters in playmaker Prentiss Hubb and fifth-year big man Juwan Durham. Both started in all but one of the 32 games last year and fill key roles for Mike Brey’s squad. Hubb (12.1 points, 5.1 assists, 38.5 percent field goals) will be handed the keys to the team and is looked upon to shoulder a heavy load on offense.

The good news for Michigan State is that with a game under its belt, it has a better idea of its personnel, what it has done well, and what it needs to work on.

At 6-foot-4 and 340 pounds, Naquan Jones is an imposing presence on the field. The Michigan State fifth-year senior defensive tackle is also known as a soft-spoken and affable teammate quick to smile or make a joke. “It’s a tale of two sides for Naquan,” said Michigan State redshirt sophomore tight end Trent Gillison, who is roommates with Jones.

Tom Izzo liked what he saw from No. 12 Michigan State in its season-opening win over Eastern Michigan on Wednesday night. He also saw plenty of flaws that need fine-tuning and major fixing fast, particularly 18 turnovers. But Izzo also remained realistic about the performance against an Eagles team that was missing six players and an assistant coach due to COVID-19 contact tracing. EMU used just seven players in the Spartans’ 83-67 victory.

Northwestern enters the contest with a 5-0 record, and a No. 8 ranking in the initial College Football Playoff rankings. NU has an extremely stout defense.

Considering Michigan State has reached the halfway point of the season, it can be a good time to assess where Mel Tucker is in his first season as the Spartans’ head coach. Of course, it’s fair to point out that up until this point, Tucker and his staff have needed all of this time to start drawing conclusions about the roster they inherited back when Tucker was hired in early February.

With the one-two scoring punch of TJ Gibbs and John Mooney having graduated, Notre Dame will need to find several go-to scorers to replace their production. The two most likely candidates are Prentiss Hubb and Dane Goodwin, both of whom are high volume three point shooters (Hubb shot 6.9 3FG per game at a 34.4% clip and Goodwin shot 4.3 3FGA at 37.7%) and finished third and fourth in PPG last season.

Michigan State defeated EMU 83-67 in their season opener on the back of a well balanced offensive attack led by Foster Loyer (20 pts) and Joey Hauser (15 points). The Spartans shot 30/55 (54%) from the field and 12/28 (43%) from deep, while dishing out assists on 27/30 made field goals. It’s game one and there is quite a bit to dissect, so let’s dive right into the film.

The numbers don’t look good for Michigan State. If you’re putting together a tale of the tape for Saturday’s matchup with No. 11 Northwestern, those numbers paint a fairly bleak picture. The Wildcats have one of the best defenses in the nation while the Spartans’ offense is among the least productive.

It had been 697 days since Joshua Langford stepped onto the Breslin Center floor to play in a game. Joey Hauser waited half as long to make his Michigan State basketball debut. Of course there were nerves and anxiousness. But the duo showed they can still be more than capable starters Wednesday.
