    导出博客文章EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Josh Langford was challenged by Tom Izzo to play better
    at both ends of the court, and the freshman responded well enough to satisfy his
    hard-to-please coach.Langford had a season-high 15 points and improved his play
    defensively, helping Michigan State bounce back from a poor performance with a
    77-57 win over Youngstown State on Tuesday night.The Spartans (6-4) were coming
    off a four-point win over Oral Roberts in which Izzo lamented the play of
    Langford publicly and privately.I knew I hadnt done a good job for Michigan
    State, and my teammates, Langford said. This time, I didnt care about
    scoring.Langford has gotten off to a slow start this season, scoring in single
    digits in his first nine games, in part because of a hamstring injury that made
    it look like he was laboring to run fluidly with his ailing left leg. Izzo said
    Langford isnt in pain, but also is not in good condition because of how limited
    he has been physically this season.Im trying to get him more shots, more playing
    time and get him in better shape, Izzo said.The Penguins (5-5) were led by Matt
    Donlan, who scored 15 of his 21 points in the first half, and Francisco
    Santiago, who had eight of his 13 points after halftime. Youngstown State made
    just 33 percent of its shots.We just dont have that third guy, Youngstown State
    coach Jerry Slocum said.Both teams were without their leading scorers, both of
    whom are from Flint, Michigan.Michigan States Miles Bridges missed a second
    straight game with a sprained left ankle. Youngstown States Cameron Morse sat
    out a third consecutive game with an injured right wrist.The Spartans led by
    seven points at halftime before pulling away in the second half.BIG
    PICTUREYoungstown State: The Penguins had enough energy to hang with Michigan
    State in the first half with one tie and one lead change, but they didnt have
    enough to keep it close without Morse. He is averaging 23.7 points.Hes a special
    offensive player, Slocum said.Michigan State: Izzo didnt like how any of his
    wings played in the previous game, and wasnt thrilled with any of them besides
    Langford even though senior Eron Harris and sophomore Matt McQuaid also scored
    in double figures. Harris had 13 points and McQuaid scored 11, but they were a
    combined 10 of 26 overall and 4 of 15 on 3-point shots and didnt play well
    enough at the other end for Izzo.When I got two freshmen playing better defense
    than a sophomore and a senior, thats not too settling for me, Izzo said.IN THE
    PAINTNick Ward had 13 points and eight rebounds a game after the freshman
    forward scored a season-high 24 points and matched his best game on the boards
    with 10 rebounds. Ward played 20 minutes, coming in and out of the game more
    frequently than Izzo would like because hes not in good enough shape to play
    more consistently.Nick has got to be able to play more than 3, 4 minutes in a
    stretch, Izzo said.BRING THE BUZZWithout Miles, the Spartans are lacking a
    playmaker that fires up the team and the crowd.He makes a lot of electric dunks,
    McQuaid said. We have to find that energy he brings.PUT ME IN, COACHMatt Van Dyk
    grabbed a career-high nine rebounds, more than doubling his previous high.Im
    trying to figure out if that is good news or bad news, Izzo said. We put that
    kid in a tough situation.The 6-foot-5, 220-pound former walk-on was needed in
    the post because Ward was often too tired to play more and Kenny Goins fouled
    out in just 15 minutes.UP NEXTYoungstown State: Plays at American on
