The start of the NCAA tournament is arguably the best week on the sports calendar, filled with great teams, exciting games, star players and, usually, plenty of upsets.
The Big Ten’s Freshman of the Year last season is averaging 17.9 points per game (second in the conference), 4.3 rebounds, 2.8 assists, and two steals for the 22-6 Spartans.
Michigan State had no problems against Memphis as the Spartans topped the Tigers by 22 points.
The Hurricanes couldn’t really be a contender at the top of the league, could they? We’ll have a pretty good idea if that’s possible after Wednesday night when Miami hosts Michigan State as part of the ACC/Big Ten Challenge.
