Michigan State is on a roll and tracking to a number one tournament seed. They have a super high ceiling.
Northwestern was supposed to use this season to build on last year’s success. That hasn’t happened. A win here would be awesome but likely still not enough to punch their ticket.
Michigan State Spartans
No team is perfect this season but the Spartans are among the best, They have nice balance between offense and defense and youth and experience. They are playing great.
Miles Bridges was pre-season all everything this season. He has failed to live up to those expectations but he is the best player on a team that might be the best in America.
Jaren Jackson Jr, might be the Spartans best talent though. His per game numbers don’t jump off the page but that is because he only plays 22 minutes per game. He just posted a season high 27 points.
He and Cassius Winston look like the wild cards for this group. As good as Sparty is they need Winston to be consistent if they are going to achieve a really big goal this season.
Inconsistency has plagued this team all season. They have lost their last two games essentially removing themselves from all bubble conversations.
Not helping matters for this game against the Spartans is that PG Bryant McIntosh may not be available due to injury. He wasn’t having a great season but still.
That means Scottie Lindsey is going to have to be bombs away. He is the Wildcats leading scorer but his shooting percentages stink. They need him to get hot.
Derek Pardon is undersized but often effective. He will be in a battle all game long and I don’t like his chances of winning any matchups.
