The Spartans win big in the opening game of the 2015-16 season missing one of their key contributors from last years’ team, Gavin Schilling. However, senior Matt Costello and freshman Deyonta Davis were more than enough up front to handle the visitors from Florida. MSU was very good defensively and showed plenty of firepower offensively. One holdover problem from last year was the free throw shooting. The Spartans went 17 for 28 (61%) from the foul line. That is inexcusable for the entire team. That statistic will definitely have to improve as the season goes along.
