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.

Michigan State basketball handles EMU, 83-67, as Foster Loyer makes most of surprise start Detroit Free Press
The lineup caught people by surprise. Not Joshua Langford’s return. Not even Thomas Kithier taking Xavier Tillman’s vacancy. Foster Loyer got the start at point guard. And he immediately put on a show for the Michigan State fans watching at home.

The 13th-ranked Spartans rolled, of course, crushing the visiting Eagles 83-67. Early on, before fans would’ve been tempted to turn toward the exits, there were a couple moments that deserved a live crowd. Moments like fifth-year senior Joshua Langford making his first shot — a wing 3-pointer — since Dec. 29, 2018, or the five early 3-pointers buried by junior Foster Loyer, who got the start at point guard.

I didn’t like the idea of Foster Loyer starting for Michigan State on Wednesday, for no other reason than I thought it put needless pressure on him, even if he’d earned the role, instead of letting him perhaps be a pleasant surprise behind Rocket Watts.
