Matt McQuaid thinks Michigan State is set up for another Final Four run. The Spartans return experience and potential NBA talent in Cassius Winston, Joshua Langford, Aaron Henry, and Xavier Tillman. And McQuaid loves the recruiting class. A fellow Dallas guy in forward Julius Marble. A young point guard in Rocket Watts. And a promising wing in Malik Hall. “We got a really good team next year,” McQuaid said Tuesday after working out for the Detroit Pistons. “I’m excited to see what they do.”

“It’s all about, ‘Is [the fire] working for me or is it working against me?'” Green says. “When I’m channeling it to work for me, I think I’m one of the baddest motherf—ers on the planet. When it gets the best of me, I’m not so good.”

Cassius Winston said last month he feels he can still make improvements following a season at Michigan State in which he was named the Big Ten’s top player and an All-American. That’s scary stuff for opponents. The Spartans’ returning point guard already is considered one of the nation’s top players for next season, landing Monday at the top of NCAA writer Andy Katz’s list of favorites to win the Bob Cousy Award as the country’s best point guard for the 2019-20 season.

As Brad Salem walks into a meeting room at the Duffy Daugherty Football Building, he’s exactly where he’s supposed to be. It’s late May, but Michigan State’s offensive coordinator is busy, taking advantage of a break from recruiting to pore over some game film, working on breathing some life into a Spartans offense that has had little the last couple of seasons. He’s a football coach, and there’s really nothing else he was ever going to be.

“Draymond is my personal (educational tool),” Izzo said this week. The MSU coach uses him to teach his players how to screen, how to call out picks, how to rotate to open shooters, how to jump passing lanes. This Sunday, Izzo intends to show his team highlights of Green’s most recent — and arguably his most dominant — body of work. He wants his team to see the nuance and explosiveness of the NBA’s most disruptive presence. He wants them to study.

MSU, led by Mark Dantonio, handed Meyer his first loss on the job as well as his first regular-season Big Ten defeat, dashing Ohio State’s national title aspirations both times. There was the 2013 Big Ten Championship game, when MSU upset the No. 2-ranked Buckeyes. Then there was the 2015 rain-soaked game in Columbus, when the Spartans grinded their way to a 17-14 win without starting quarterback Connor Cook.
