The Spartans seem to be getting better as the season progresses but they are also approaching double-digit losses.
Michigan has the same record but seems to be heading in the opposite direction.
The winner enhances their resume and this is a revenge spot for Big Blue as they lost to MSU on the road last month.
Michigan State Spartans
The Spartans are one of the most respected hoops programs in America so we should not be surprised that they are ultimately turning things around.
This year was different with the most talented players being freshman and even the great Tom Izzo seems to have needed some time to figure out how it all would fit together.
Adding to the difficulties was the fact that Miles Bridges, their top recruit, has been in and out of the lineup. Physically he is as gifted as any player to play for Izzo and when he is on he is as good as any player in the country. He has had some real monster games this season.
Nick Ward was not as highly touted but has proven to be a tough customer down on the block. He is an efficient post scorer and pretty good at protecting the rim – almost 2 blocks per game. He found his stride with Bridges out probably works best when he is the top option on the floor.
Eron Harris has been a dud since transferring from West Virginia. It is hard to know what is really wrong with him because his shooting percentages are solid.
MSU is looking to build upon back to back wins. They have a chance to solidify their spot just below the top of the conference over the next couple of weeks.
Whenever I see the Wolverines play I am usually impressed. They shoot the ball well and their defensive numbers are good, so why aren’t they winning more?
Part of the problem is that Zak Irvin has ye to become the player he can. Using Big Blue history I think they saw him as a Glen Rice type but he has never lived up to it. He is not hungry in looking for his offense and not proficient enough either. I think he could be though.
D.J. Wilson is becoming an ever impressive player for the Wolverines. He has the size to bang inside and the touch to shoot from the perimeter.
All of their bigs can shoot enough to stretch the floor.
Derrick Walton has been cast as the leading scorer and it is not ideal. To pull from MSU history he is more the Mateen Cleaves guy, scoring as a last resort. If they can play like that they will be better.

Free Michigan State Spartans vs. Michigan Wolverines NCAAB Prediction:
MSU has won the last five covering in four. Even though they are on the road they are a solid bet.
I feel like this one might be perfectly lined up for a teaser play with some other Tuesday action.
