No. 4/4 Michigan State Hosts Michigan on Saturday

Adjust Comment Print

Michigan State's Nick Ward had 17 points. They have everything you want in a team: depth, experience, shooting, and a star in Miles Bridges that makes them so formidable. Unfortunatly they haven't beaten any of the other really good opponents they've played against losing to North Carolina, Ohio St. and LSU. That won't change on Saturday as the Spartans will feel much more pressure to score each time down the floor that they will protect the ball more than usual. Bridges was absent for the first 30 minutes, not scoring a point until about eight minutes to go.

"I told Miles he's gotta be more selfish with the ball", Izzo said. I think the deciding factor will be how the benches play for either team, if the spartans bench can dominate like they have all season I see no reason why they should lose this game. (11.1). Ward leads in rebounds with 7.7 while Winston tops in assists with 7.2 per game.

Bridges' first bucket of the contest game at the 7:41 mark in the second half, attacking the bucket and finishing with an acrobatic, left-handed finger roll.

However, that was possibly because he was more of the aggressor against Rutgers, posting up hard and helping to get three Scarlet Knight big men to foul out and a fourth with four.

Izzo said after he addressed the team following the win - "The best thing about the night was when it ended", he joked - a number of former players were outside the locker room. "If we follow it and play our game, we'll be fine".

"They pose a lot of problems", Pikiell said. It took overtime for the Spartans to knock off those pesky Scarlet Knights but regardless they came away victorious. The Spartans have been careless with the ball this season, averaging 13.7 turnovers a game, which is just slightly below the 14.3 takeaways MI gets per game. I'm anxious about, are they going to bear down and get a little tougher.

Rutgers announced earlier in the day it signed Pikiell to an extension to keep him under contract through the 2023-24 season.

"After much thought and consideration, I have made a decision to transfer from Michigan State University", Jackson posted.

A day after standout sophomore wing Blair Watson suffered a season-ending ACL injury in practice, Maryland on Thursday night fell to Michigan State at Xfinity Center in College Park, 82-68.

But without Watson, the team's second-leading scorer and perhaps its top perimeter defender, Maryland (15-3, 4-1) looked nothing like the Big Ten's second-ranking scoring offense or third-ranked scoring defense.

"Maybe everybody got a little fat and sassy", Izzo said.

It's always a fierce battle when interstate rivals Michigan and Michigan St. square off. Michigan off to yet another fantastic season, Tom Izzo's group is now ranked 4th in the Ap top 25 and has rebounded off a awful loss to add by beating Rutgers in OT.
