Episode Three: Opening Day

I think for Fish, the goal is really about making his mark and improving his draft stock. Players are not eligible for the NBA until after their 2nd season, but there are some rumors that Fish will leave after just one year and play in Europe for his second season before being NBA eligible. Iím not sure if thatís going to happen or not, but for right now, heís just interested in having the most impact for a Michigan State team thatís adamant about winning another title.

OPENING DAY

Fish Daniels makes his debut in the Green and White, scoring 24 points and grabbing 12 rebounds in the win over Villanova. He's going to be fun to watch this year.

In Pookieís first game, he also made a splash winning player of the game honors after dishing 11 assists and notching 14 points in a win over Lamar. It's clear he's doing well in a program where he can be a starter from Day 1, which was his goal and as I discussed earlier, ULL is a program that's had success, so he's not on a team that's bad.
