Vic Schaefer sat at the postgame press conference table on Monday night perturbed and dejected.
If one had just watched his team play, they would have thought the 122-82 victory over Troy was actually a Bulldog loss.
No. 10 MSU had just had its second-consecutive game of 120 or more points and had notched that total for the first time in school history, but Schaefer saw things differently.
He saw a team that was out-rebounded, a team that had been beat down the floor in transition and one that had given up 82 points. He also had the weight of a pregame shoot around weighing heavily as he stated only four players were on the floor on time.
