FRESHMAN START: Max Christie shows tantalizing skills in Michigan State’s convincing win over Butler
VIDEO: Izzo praises Spartans’ defense vs. Butler
Jayden Taylor #13 of the Butler Bulldogs defends against the shot of Gabe Brown #44 of the Michigan State Spartans during the first half at Hinkle Fieldhouse on November 17, 2021 in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Game notes: Freshman Max Christie is rounding into form for the Spartans; he’s averaging 11 points and 3.7 rebounds per game over MSU’s first three outings, even while his 3-point shooting (35.7%) is still a little raw. Co-captain Gabe Brown, meanwhile, appears to have stepped up, with 15.3 points and five rebounds a game, including shooting 64.3% on 2-pointers.
The Spartans are looking to extend a 10-game winning streak against the Eagles. EMU’s last win over MSU came on Dec. 17, 1987, when the Eagles’ Grant Long scored 21 points, including a three-point play in OT to lock up an 84-80 victory at Bowen Field House in Ypsilanti. The stands that day were packed for a halftime tribute to the California Bowl-bound football team. The game this year is in East Lansing, but EMU is bowl-eligible again. Just saying.
