The Spartans and the Huskies are headed overseas for their first game of the year, and they are going to look like two totally different teams from last year’s clubs that made it into the NCAA Tournament. Michigan State is going to be without F Draymond Green, who really did it all for them, but at least they have some veteran leadership, such as that of G Keith Appling to fall back on. The Huskies on the other hand, have lost F Alex Oriakhi to a transfers, as well as G Jeremy Lamb to the NBA. There really aren’t any prolific scorers that can take over a game on the team, and there isn’t a player on the team that averaged even four boards per game last year that is returning. This is the first UConn team in quite some time that doesn’t have arguably any NBA talent on it, and that is going to make life tough for first year Head Coach Kevin Ollie. This is going to be a tough one for Connecticut, and it should ultimately end up getting clocked by a Spartans outfit that is never afraid to take on anyone, anywhere in the world.
