Needless to say that I am thrilled Ayo is back.  Kofi should be back too and they could be a really nice team with the pieces they added.  Please let there be a season.

Tillman staying in Draft, Henry returning.

Makes sense

Garza returning for his SR season. I think this puts Iowa firmly in the top 10 even if he doesn't match what he did last year.

As long as they figure out how to play a smidgen of defense, I'd say they have to be the preseason conference favorites.

Yeah, not sure if that is even possible with this coaching staff. Still with all the scoring options they will have, not sure if they will need much defense.

Michigan State basketball has filled its final scholarship from within, awarding it to redshirt junior Jack Hoiberg, the program announced Tuesday. The move was made possible by Xavier Tillman’s decision to remain in the NBA Draft, and it puts MSU back at the 13-scholarship limit for next season.

“I knew with Xavier (Tillman) leaving, there was a spot open, but you never really know if there’s a chance or maybe what the coaches were thinking,” Hoiberg said in a press release. “I had spoken to Coach about it in the past, but again, you never really know. It was really cool when he told me.”

The son of Nebraska head coach Fred Hoiberg, Jack Hoiberg joined MSU as a walk-on out of Hinsdale (Illinois) Central in 2017. The 5-foot-11, 175-pound guard has appeared in 28 career games, totaling 59 minutes.

Jack Hoiberg registered his only career start when MSU traveled to Nebraska last February, a gesture from Tom Izzo to Fred Hoiberg, who have become friends in recent years. The younger Hoiberg turned in four points, two assists and a rebound in the Spartans’ 86-65 win over his dad’s team.

“This was not given, he earned this,” Izzo said in a press release. “He has been unbelievable since he came here. Jack didn’t just have this given to him. He has worked so hard and he deserves it.”

He was more consistent than Foster Loyer last year.  Not much of an offensive threat, but he was competent when needed, and could play serviceable defense, whereas Loyer was an absolute liability on that side of the floor.

I wish he was earning a ship in Lincoln

I understand playing for your old man could be rough, for both

Unless you are in Iowa City, seems the thing to do there
