Thursday college hoops has an inner state BIG 10 showdown in the works between the Michigan State Spartans and Michigan Wolverines. These two have been competing in the stacked BIG 10 conference all year where Michigan remains the top dog and is likely to be in line for a #1 seed whereas Michigan State has been making a late tournament push themselves.
Michigan State (14-10, 8-10 BIG10) will make the short hour trip to pay a visit to longtime rival Michigan (18-2, 13-2 BIG 10) and look to give them back to back losses at home. This will be the first matchup between the teams as they will play again on Sunday for the final game of their regular seasons.
If Michigan wants to solidify a #1 seed in March Madness a win here would most certainly lock one up meanwhile Michigan State has been playing great ball lately and a good showing will go a long way in solidifying their spot in the dance.
Michigan State Spartans
Michigan State is in the bottom half of the conference’s standings which to most would be a wasted season but fortunately for the Spartans they compete in a stacked BIG10 conference. Tom Izzo is a legendary coach in the realm of NCAA hoops and is once again in a spot to take his team to his 23rd consecutive NCAA tournament appearance.
The Spartans looked to be in trouble of breaking Izzo’s streak but have fortunately gotten hot at just the right time. Michigan State has won 4 of their last 5 games including back to back top 10 home wins over llinois and Ohio State.
Their last two games are both against rival Michigan which will certainly bode well for them if they can grab a win in either matchup or at least keep it close enough to prove their worthiness of a March Madness spot.
Michigan has been on a roll all season and has surprised some their elite play which now has them all the way up to #3 in the country. The Wolverines are at the top of the BIG10 at 12-2 with 9 of those wins coming by a double digit margin.
They were handed their first home loss of the season by Illinois on Tuesday as they were outplayed in both halves on the way to an embarrassing 76-53 beatdown. Fortunately for the Wolverines it could serve as a wakeup call for the team as they were receiving buzz as potentially the best team in the country.
Michigan will have time to tune up their mistakes with back to back appearances against in state rivals the Michigan State Spartans.

Free Michigan State Spartans vs. Michigan Wolverines NCAAB Prediction:
Michigan State has been playing great lately and Michigan was just beaten at home is there another upset brewing? I don’t see it happening. Michigan was embarrassed on their home court for the first time all year after getting too high on themselves thanks to the national media attention. In almost every conference game this year the Wolverines have blown out their opponents and I see that happening once again. There is no way Juwan Howard will have his team unprepared again and drop their final game on their home court before the tournament begins. Back the Wolverines in a bounce back game here.
