MSU-Delaware: Halftime on Ice

By Jeff Lippman - March 18, 2007


The Icecapades have made their way to East Lansing, except instead of laying the ice down over the court, they put it on the rims.

At the half, Michigan State has a 25-20 lead...if you can call it that.

The Spartans are shooting a lights out 8-for-29 from the field. I say lights out since it seems they are shooting in the dark.

MSU is holding the five-point lead because, well, Delaware, if possible, has been worse. The Blue Hens have also hit just eight shots in the half, but they've jacked it up 41 times, for a nice round percentage of 19.5.

If you think three point shooting has been any better...it hasn't. The Spartans are making just 27 percent of their threes while the Lady Hens an abysmal 10 percent.

Delaware can't even buy a made basket at the free throw line where they are shooting 37.5 percent thus far.

This has eclipsed the Vanderbilt-Delaware State game for ugliness. Maybe it's just the state of Delaware?

If Wayne's World thought enough of the state to poke fun at it, that's good enough for me.
