Nicholls State vs. Michigan State: Spartans seek consistent rotation

Gregory Shamus

Michigan State is in search of a consistent rotation as Gary Harris and Travis Trice return to the lineup.

Michigan State is looking to bounce back after a 67-59 loss to Miami in the Big Ten/ACC challenge on Wednesday. They will need to establish a consistent rotation against Nicholls State on Saturday.

The Spartans welcomed Gary Harris (shoulder) and Travis Trice (concussion) back to the lineup against Miami, but struggled to find a rhythm on offense as they shot just 40.7 percent from the field while allowing Miami to shoot 47.7 percent, including 9-of-16 from three-point territory.

Appling led Michigan State with 15 points against Miami. Harris and Branden Dawson were the only two other players in double-figures as they had 12 and 11 points, respectively.

The loss dropped the Spartans to 5-2 on the season heading into Saturday afternoon's game versus Nicholls State. The Colonels are coming off a 92-79 win over New Orleans on Nov. 26 after opening the season with losses against Vanderbilt and No. 14 Missouri.
