Michigan State's Miles Bridges chooses to stay in school
Apr 15 2017
Miles Bridges in his sophomore campaign at Michigan State?
Miles Bridges, at the foot of Michigan State's Sparty statue, made an announcement that nearly gave Tom Izzo tears of joy.
Bridges only season as a Michigan State Spartan saw him average 16.9 points and 8.3 rebounds per game on 38.9 percent from 3-point range (56 for 144) and had an overall mark of 48.6 percent from the field.
Bridges' return to MSU will make the Spartans one of the elite teams in the 2017-18 season. I've got something to say. Only one member of the second team (Gonzaga's Nigel Williams-Goss) is still on the fence about his decision, and only one member of the third team (Notre Dame's Bonzie Colson) has stated definitively that he's coming back to school.
Bridges said he's coming back to chase a national championship.
Despite his ridiculous athleticism and the predictions of future National Basketball Association stardom, Bridges still isn't as recognizable as, say, Grayson Allen, but don't be surprised if that changes over the course of the next 12 months.
I've been around elite basketball players who suggested their college careers might last beyond one season on many occasions.
Bridges likely bypassed being a lottery pick to return to school.
Instead, Bridges is returning to Michigan State where he will have an extra year to develop his game.
Bridges was part of a highly touted recruiting class that lived up to the hype.
If one were to look at the team stats, Bridges was everything for Michigan State this past season.
Bridges scored 40 points in the NCAA tourney, including 22 in a second-round loss to Kansas, and also broke Scott Skiles' single-game freshman scoring mark with 33 points in a loss to Purdue on January 24. Eight of the Spartans' top 10 players. Another player, power forward Gavin Schilling, will play as a fifth-year senior after missing last season with a knee injury and center Ben Carter has petition the NCAA for another season of eligibility after missing last season with a knee injury.
Las Vegas is buying Michigan State as a title contender for next season.
Bridges is a Flint native who committed to the Spartans after starring at Huntington Prep in West Virginia.
