Tracking the True Freshmen: Michigan State

Indiana's true freshman combined to score 22 points and pull down 24 rebounds against Michigan State. But it wasn't Noah Vonleh that had the lion's share of the scoring but rather Stanford Robinson.

The Indiana freshman class is one man down with the news that Luke Fischer has withdrawn from the university. But we'll continue checking out the performances of the five that remain.

Here is a look at how Indiana's freshmen performed Saturday afternoon against No. 5 Michigan State.

Noah Vonleh: Vonleh had five points and nine rebounds but was pretty much missing in action in 11 second-half minutes. He did not attempt a shot in the second half, score a point or shoot a free throw. Vonleh scored on a sweeping left handed shot across the lane with 19:26 to play in the first half to give IU a 2-0 lead. He had a jam in transition with 7:56 to play in the half when he got ahead of everyone running down the court. He made the first of two free throws with 3:43 to play in the first half. And that was it. Vonleh did have nine rebounds but only one on the offensive end. He was 2-of-4 from the field, had two turnovers and IU's only blocked shot.

Troy Williams: Williams started and played 25 minutes but his contributions were minimal. He had four points on a 1-of-6 shooting. He missed both of his 3-point attempts and was just 2-of-5 from the free throw line including a missed front end of a one-and-one. He had four rebounds, one assist, one steal and no turnovers.

Stanford Robinson: One game after playing a season-high 19 minutes in the Big Ten opener at Illinois, Robinson played 26 against Michigan State. He scored a season-high 11 points on 5-of-9 shooting and was 1-of-2 from the free throw line. He had four rebounds, two assists, and one turnover.

Collin Hartman: Hartman played the final two minutes. He had an offensive rebound and a missed put back.

Devin Davis: Davis saw his most action since the Connecticut game Nov. 22 as he played 13 minutes. He had two points and six rebounds. He hit 1-of-3 shots from the field and missed his only free throw attempt, which was the front end of a one-and-one.

Combined, the IU freshmen scored 22 points and pulled down 24 rebounds.
