Michigan State Spartans
We covered with Michigan State over the weekend when the Spartans continued a magnificent run of double-digit wins (and covers). They have won by double-digits thirteen times this season and won on the road against both Florida and Ohio State by four and nine points, respectively. Both of those were covers.
Sparty has covered in thirteen out of seventeen this season and six in a row. Since Thanksgiving, the only game they have failed to cover was at home against Green Bay, where they won by 21 as 25.5-point favorites.
Joshua Langford hasn’t played in five games now with a foot injury. He was replaced in the starting lineup by Kyle Ahrens, who hurt himself the game before last.
That thrust freshman Aaron Henry into the starting lineup against Penn State and Michigan State played “sloppy basketball,” according to the Detroit Free Press.
Langford was in a walking boot and Ahrens didn’t even make the trip to Penn State. If neither are available in this game, which appears likely, we’re going to see the lowest number Michigan State has to cover in quite some time.
That’s because Nebraska can match Michigan State’s seniority and may even have more experience, given the Spartans’ injury problems.
The ‘Huskers are also coming off their finest win of the season, a 15-point drubbing of Indiana at Assembly Hall. They shot just six free throws, compared to Indiana’s 19 but it didn’t matter in the end.
Four of Nebraska’s starters were in double-figures and Indiana shot just 36.5 percent and turned it over 13 times, which was a big number in a game that played to a 67-possession pace.
