This is going to be a special MSU basketball team this year. There seems to be many players in this group. In the victory over Providence for the championship of the Wooden Legacy Classic, Denzel Valentine had an off night as he got into early foul trouble which limited his effectiveness. However, the depth of this team came into play with key contributions from Bryn Forbes and freshmen Deyonta Davis and Matt McQuaid, but the player who stood out to me was transfer guard Eron Harris. He looked the best that he’s looked so far this season as he seem to take over down the stretch. It was easy to see that he has some special talent and he will be a force for opponents in the Big Ten to contend with as he gets more comfortable.
