MSU By The Numbers: A Cumulative Look

A cumulative look at MSU basketball scoring efficiency by lineup combinations for the Loyola-Marymount and Winthrop games.

In this postgame feature we analyze the scoring efficiency of each lineup combination as well as the scoring efficiency of various other combinations and by player. Obviously, there are many factors involved in how well each combination or each player, for that matter, does. Hence, this feature is more for entertainment value than a true indication of how well each lineup or player does during a game and during the season.

During the 2 game there were 30 lineup combinations.

Of the 11 players that played for MSU during the two games, below is a list of how many combinations each played in.
