Izzo Talks Bucks After Blasting Gophers 70-46

"I say 17-4 is an incredible start, but we all know the real part of the season gets rolling for us as far as competition," said MSU head coach Tom Izzo.

EAST LANSING - With a tough schedule in the upcoming weeks staring them dead in the face, Michigan State built much needed confidence on Wednesday night as they pounded Minnesota 70-46 to record their fourth straight victory.

Raymar Morgan led the Spartans (17-4, 4-2) with 14 points, Drew Neitzel scored 13, and Goran Suton added 10 points as the team improved to a dominant 14-0 record at home.

With a trip to #5 Ohio State on Saturday looming in the distance, the Spartans took care of business at home and dominated the Gophers (7-13, 1-5), who were down 40-20 at halftime.

Dan Coleman and Oklahoma transfer Lawrence McKenzie each had 13 points for the Gophers, who shot a dismal 31 percent from the field.

Minnesota jumped out to an early lead at 7-4 but the Spartans took back the lead in the midst of a 20-6 run that put them up by 11 points.

MSU opened the second half on an 11-4 run and led by 30 points at 59-29 with 11:46 remaining. MSU recorded six blocks on the night, often stopping runs by the Gophers and catching them flat.

"I think defensively, what I was most impressed with what we did, is maybe what Minnesota didn't do tonight," said MSU coach Tom Izzo.

"They've been holding teams under 40 percent (field-goal shooting) and you know we were up in the 60s early, so I thought we executed pretty well at times. To shoot over 50 percent against that team, that was one big goal for us. The other was get the rebounding down and we won that by 14," added Izzo.

Another big positive in Izzo's eyes was his team's generosity with the ball.

"The other stat that I thought was incredible and was really pleasing, and I'm really happy for Travis Walton is the 25 assists on 29 baskets. Drew Neitzel said he had some shots that he'd make in his sleep, especially a couple of threes, and he felt bad that he let Travis Walton down a little bit. The assists on that number of baskets was great," said Izzo.

The Spartans now face a hectic and difficult week of competition beginning on Saturday at #5 Ohio State. MSU will then travel to Illinois and play in front of the always tough crowd of the Orange Crush. They close off the week on the following Saturday by hosting Ohio State.

"I say 17-4 is an incredible start, but we all know the real part of the season gets rolling for us as far as competition," said Izzo.

After starting Big Ten play 0-2, the Spartans have reeled off four wins and find themselves in a good spot heading into Columbus.

They carry confidence and momentum and besides Isaiah Dahlman, have a healthy lineup ready to take on Greg Oden and the storm of three-pointers that the Buckeyes bring to the table.
