Izzo has had plenty of time alone with this thoughts and to bounce his musings off colleagues and friends.

Filling the void Winston leaves behind in East Lansing will be a tall task, especially for head coach Tom Izzo. Winston was another in a long list of great point guards who were also leaders for the green and white, a position that Izzo loves to lay plenty of responsibility on and which he sees as his brain out on the court. But he is gone and there will be a new reality, one that will come to forefront during the games, in the huddle, in the locker room and maybe most important behind closed doors.

To what level he’d play, I don’t know. But I tell you what, last fall, he was damn good. I lost my second best player, there’s no question.”

Xavier Tillman has entered his name into the upcoming NBA draft. But he has not hired an agent, so he could still return to school. With less than a month to decide, the Grand Rapids Christian High School graduate says he is still at the 50/50 mark, which is where he was when he put his name in the draft. “If you look at mock drafts, you would think I was for sure. But it’s all about what I hear from NBA teams and what they like about my game, what they don’t like. Whether they see me getting drafted by them or not. That’s what I’m looking for, some guarantees so that I’m more confident in teams,” he said.

Cassius Winston’s hair has growna little longer since March. His facial hair? Let’s just say it’s nowhere near James Harden’s level. “I was really hoping my beard was gonna come in,” Winston said with a laugh while stroking his chin on a video teleconference with reporters Monday, “but it didn’t really work out.”
