EAST LANSING -- There was no anger when Tom Izzo watched the film of Michigan State's season-opening loss to Kansas back at the Breslin Center this week.
Izzo pointed to the eight turnovers and 11 missed free throws in that half in part as evidence that his key players were trying to do too much on the big stage.
Cassius Winston, Nick Ward and Joshua Langford also combined to shoot 2-for-12 that half.
Florida Gulf Coast has won 21 or more games in each of the last six seasons and garnered national attention for a Sweet 16 run in 2013.
Marquette transfer Haanif Cheatham is also in double figures at 10 points per game.
That group opened its season on Tuesday by losing at Illinois State, then beating NAIA school Southeastern on Thursday at home.
