A little more than halfway into the 2011-12 season, MSU has performed much better than many expected.
With six newcomers and the loss of two of the better players in program history, there were a lot of questions around this team. But at 15-4 overall and 4-2 in the Big Ten, it's clear MSU is back on track.
But which player has been the biggest surprise?
Keith Appling had a lot of question marks taking over the point, Travis Trice and Brandan Kearney have had an impact as freshmen (Trice early on and Kearney recently). Austin Thornton is playing a bigger role than expected.
So take the poll on the right side of the page. I didn't include Draymond Green because I think everyone expected him to be the top-dog, so to speak. I included "other" as an option. If you think it's someone I left out, explain in the comment section on this post.
