Drew Neitzel has not been himself in MSU's first two exhibition games against Grand Valley State and Michigan Tech.
While he has had some open shots, he has not been able to convert as consistently as he usually has in the past.
"I think he's pressing a little bit, but like I said he had good shots," said coach Tom Izzo. "We opened it up with the best shot we could get him right off the bat, and the ball went right through his hands. So I think he's pressing a little bit but I sure can't worry too much about a kid who shoots it as well as he does and works as hard as he does and yet we aren't going to look as good as we look when those kind of things happen."
Neitzel talked to gospartans.net after the Michigan Tech game about his struggles and what MSU needs to do before their regular season opener next Tuesday.
