Year one can’t really be considered a success for AJ Hoggard with Michigan State basketball but it also wasn’t a failure.
Hoggard looked like a point guard who showed flashes of being able to lead an offense but his lack of quality shooting was holding him back. Defenses pretty much didn’t have to account for him around the perimeter with his 16 percent shooting from deep and 31 percent field goal rate.
