The 6-foot-10, 215-pound Sissoko is from Mali. Sissoko averaged more than 12 points and nearly nine rebounds last season as a junior at Wasatch Academy in Utah. He is ranked No. 37 among recruits in the nation by 247 Sports.

The 6-3, 220-pound Hoggard, who is from Coatesville, Pennsylvania, averaged 15.6 points last year and won a state title as a junior at Archbishop Carroll High School in suburban Philadelphia. Hoggard is ranked as the No. 71 recruit overall and attends Huntington Prep in West Virginia.

 

The Spartans were ranked No. 1 to start this season but now hold the No. 3 spot after losing their opener to Kentucky.
