If the party’s theme was “spill your drink,” then, well, you did what you had to do and nothing more.

For the beginning of Monday night’s contest against Northwestern, the Michigan men’s basketball team was exactly in this position. Facing the Wildcats’ zone defense, the Wolverines started 1-for-12 from three and coughed up the ball four times in the first 15 minutes, while also missing a number of defensive assignments.

“New year, new me” is as applicable to you as it is to the Michigan State men’s basketball team. In the 2016-17 season, the Spartans began the year ranked at No. 12, eventually sliding to become a No. 9 seed in the NCAA Tournament and ducking out in the first weekend with a loss to Kansas.
