Here is more of a break down, from ESPN, on who and what to watch for during today’s Michigan State vs Duke match up.
Who to watch: Duke’s Ryan Kelly. The senior was relatively anonymous in the first weekend in Philadelphia, scoring all of nine points in the two games and shooting woefully. He was a combined 3 of 13 and 0-for-4 from the arc. You can get away with that against Albany and Creighton, not so much the Spartans. The Blue Devils need Kelly to score and stretch the defense to give Mason Plumlee room to work.
What to watch: Can Ryan Kelly stretch the defense and give the Blue Devils the edge, or is he more of a liability trying to go against the beefier Spartans?
Stat to watch: Rebounds. Duke doesn’t miss much — the Devils rank 17th in the nation in field-goal percentage — but when it does, it’s not terribly effective on the boards. Michigan State, thanks largely to Adreian Payne and Derrick Nix, is relatively relentless. Expect Tom Izzo to stress the boards as a way to exploit the Blue Devils.
