If this is a peek into what the 2017-18 season for Michigan State has in store, Spartan fans will be very pleased.
While competing at the Moneyball Pro-am game on Tuesday night, one monster jam alley-oop dominated the chatter of the evening. The feed came off the backboard and was supplied by former Michigan State Spartan, and current Chicago Bulls guard Denzel Valentine.
On the thunderous end, a Michigan State sophomore, and possibly the most explosive college basketball player in the country this year, Miles Bridges.
He didn’t disappoint with the finish.

There was speculations that Bridges might decide to go to the NBA Draft after his freshman year at Michigan State. In his first season, he shot 47.5 percent from the field, and 39.7 percent from long range.
Returning for his second year under coach Tom Izzo, Bridges has a legitimate chance to average a double-double this season.
The 6-foot-7 forward was highly recruited, and was ranked as the third best at his position in the country coming out of high school. He was considered a top-10 prospect at any position nationally.
With monstrous slams like this, with bonafide professionals on the court, it’s easy to understand why.
