The offseason is a time in which teams pose questions.
The regular season is when they are answered.
Tom Izzo's Michigan State Spartans are preparing for what promises to be a fruitful 2013-14 campaign. Other than the departure of Derrick Nix, Izzo's team should be similar this year as it was during this past season.
Leadership is always a concern for Izzo, a coach whose methods of developing floor generals is tried and true. Michigan State is in the process of learning who will carry it through March (and maybe April).
The Spartans have also learned that they have a legitimate superstar—not just a local hero—on their hands. Well, they may have more than one, actually.
This slideshow will highlight five of the top storylines and lessons learned during the offseason.
