Amazingly fast first basket a team effort for Michigan State in win over North Florida (Video)

The Dagger

It would be difficult to start a game in more impressive fashion than Michigan State did Tuesday night in its win over North Florida.

The Spartans put the ball in the hole on a Branden Dawson dunk just 4 seconds into the action. What makes the achievement even more impressive is that four Spartans had a hand in making it happen.

Center Adreian Payne won the tip. Gaurd Alex Guana snagged it out of the air and made a stellar pass to Keith Appling who lobbed to Dawson for the dunk. All of that in 4 seconds. Impressive.
