Johnson provides the inside touch with 15.5 points and 9 rebounds per night.

Michigan State Spartans

The Michigan State Spartans are putting their faith to Cassius Winston that is balling really hard for them. He is the team’s court general averaging 17.6 points, 6 assists and 1.2 steals per game.

Xavier Tillman is the man in the paint with 12.9 points, 9.8 rebounds and 2.8 assists per game. Winston and Tillman need enough help especially from Aaron Henry, Gabe Brown and Rocket Watts.
