A former Michigan State guard, Foster Loyer was on fire Sunday to help lead Davidson to a 79-69 win over Northeastern.

Loyer spent 3 seasons with the Spartans and was voted a team captain for the 2020-21 season. Still, he entered the transfer portal in April seeking a fresh start. He landed at Davidson a little less than a month later. He opened the season with a 27-point performance but has been up-and-down as a scorer since.

Until Sunday that is. Loyer erupted.

It took him 31 minutes to get his 35 points, and he was blistering from beyond the 3-point line.

The Wildcats have won 6 straight and Loyer has played a key role all year.

A 6-foot point guard from Clarkston, Michigan, the former Michigan Mr. Basketball averaged 4.2 points and 2.3 assists in 16.6 minutes a game for the Spartans last season. He shot 29% from the field and 33% from the 3-point, but saw his season ended after 19 games by shoulder surgery.

Loyer appeared in 86 games over his career with the Spartans, but he never averaged more than 5 points. It would seem he’s getting the chance to rediscover his old self with Davidson.
