Bingham tied Xavier Tillman’s previous program record of 153 blocks on Saturday during the upset win over No. 4 Purdue. Now, Bingham will end his career all alone in the top spot.
Bingham was mainly a reserve big man his first 3 seasons with the Spartans. During the 2021-22 season, he has elevated his game as a starter, averaging 8.9 points, 6 rebounds, and 2.3 blocks per game while shooting 55% from the floor. We’ll see if he is able to have a big impact Tuesday against the Wolverines.
