Nice of you to show up: Delvon Roe’s performance against Valpo a sign of things to come?

After not scoring in Michigan State’s two wins over Florida Gulf Coast and Gonzaga, sophomore forward Delvon Roe is showing signs that he’s rounding into form.

Roe has the ability to dominate in the Big Ten and the Spartans really need him to do it. The loss of Goran Suton has been glaring in MSU’s first three games and Roe needs to fill in the gap.

Thus far, I don’t think the Spartans have looked like the second-best team in the country, but I think Roe is the key to making that happen.

From The State News:

Roe broke out with a 17-rebound performance Sunday against Valparaiso that included 10 boards on the defensive end.

“I tried to make it a point of emphasis,” Roe said. “A lot of things gotta fall your way to get those rebounds. The first two games were very frustrating, but I’m very mentally strong. That was a big key for me.”

He also dropped 10 points on 3-for-6 shooting. Izzo has said Roe has also been making strides in improving his free-throw shooting — by far his weakness last year in a season in which he attempted to get healthy from knee injury.
