As Draymond Green’s corner 3-pointer swished through the basket Thursday night during Game 6 of the NBA Finals, nearly 20,000 Golden State Warriors fans rose to their feet in celebration. And inside a Hooters in Saginaw, at least one Warriors fan did likewise.“Saginawwwww!” Jeremiah McLaurin hollered, more than 2,000 miles away from the game action in Green’s hometown.

Marcus Bingham came to Michigan State last summer as its highest-rated recruit and with an intriguing size and skill set. He stood 6-foot-11 had longer arms than Jaren Jackson Jr. He also had legitimate shooting ability, dating back to his days as a guard before a high school growth spurt. But thoughts of him breaking into the playing rotation and contributing as a freshman in 2018-19were quickly squashed.

Early indications are that XFL 2.0 aims to be a more legitimate operation than the first iteration — both led by WWE’s Vince McMahon — with Oliver Luck in place as commissioner. The league is holding tryouts in each of its eight cities this summer as it progresses toward its debut in February 2020, and a few Michigan State players have turned up to try to find a home in the spring football league.

Izzo taking Iron Mountain players through the Breslin violated NCAA rules about coaches having contact with potential recruits. While high school players are allowed to tour facilities and meet with college coaches most days of the year, they aren’t allowed to if they’re at that facility to play a game. The fact that Iron Mountain was competing in the Breslin Center the following day made Izzo’s tour against the rules.

Recently, Sports Illustrated released a list of 117 players who could compete for the Heisman Trophy, and a small portion (eight players), were defensive stars. It’s a slim percentage of the candidates, but there’s also a slim chance that a defensive player wins, too. Joe Bachie was one of the eight defensive players on the list.

You can already sense the anticipation for this coming Michigan State basketball season. Having Duke now on the home schedule adds some oomph five months out. This season didn’t need Duke, though. The Spartans, as it stands in June, are a consensus preseason No. 1, returning several pillars from a beloved Final Four team, with substantial intrigue surrounding new pieces and the possibilities for their younger players. Hope is sky high. People are pumped.

Michigan State has played some murderous non-conference schedules under Tom Izzo’s play-anyone-anywhere scheduling philosophy. This season’s slate may take the cake. The Thursday announcement of Duke’s visit to Breslin Center next fall as part of the Big Ten/ACC Challenge added to what was already a difficult slate for the Spartans next year.
