Over at The Lansing State Journal's greenandwhite.com Joe Rexrode has taken a look at Tom Izzo's "scrambled brain" as it relates to coming up with a lineup that works:
He will set a permanent starting lineup soon, and try to find a designated sixth man to bring offense off the bench - a la Morris Peterson in 1999. Hill and Ager are the most likely candidates to fill that position.And hopefully it will work. Right now nobody is shooting well enough to be relied on consistently.
Then Izzo wants his seventh, eighth and ninth spots set. Wolfe and Andreas, both juniors, likely will see little more than spot duty the rest of the season.As unexciting as that sounds they don't really have any other options.
Then comes the toughest question: Tap Johnson for substantial minutes at the point, or hold off and stick with Anderson and Hill? Johnson would be MSU's 10th regular.It seems to me you just try him out and if it turns out badly, figure the team was bound to go three or four minutes without scoring anyway.
