EAST LANSING – Foster Loyer isn’t going away, literally or figuratively. This spring, the Michigan State point guard found himself in a situation that would cause many players in his sport would look for a change of scenery: he was two years into his career, had played limited minutes and was facing a battle for a starting job as a junior. Yet when asked pointedly on Monday if he ever planned to transfer, Loyer said his focus was always on improving his situation rather than changing it.
EAST LANSING – For any other player, the highlight would have been routine: a drive to the hoop, a jump off a left foot and a dunk. But the player in this particular highlight was Michigan State senior guard Joshua Langford, in footage shot on the first day of practice earlier this month. And for that reason, the clip that Michigan State posted to its social media accounts elicited plenty of excitement from Spartans fans.
To have the versatile player the Spartans are hoping for with Hauser, it will certainly be important he have improved that skill last season in practices. Finally, both his volume and two-point shooting will be a question. While Hauser shot excellent from deep, his 46.6 percent shooting from inside the arc is in need of improvement.
