It’s a big ten match up on Thursday night when the Michigan State Spartans travel to Lincoln to take on the Cornhuskers.
Both teams have had disappointing seasons, and need a win to try and turn it around.
This is the first match up between the two teams this year. Nebraska won last years match up 72-71.
Michigan State Spartans
This Michigan State squad is not like a typical Tom Izzo squad and have way under preformed expectations.
They come into this game with a 13-9 record and sit in fifth place in the Big Ten.
They have lost three of their last four games, and those loses weren’t really close. They are giving up way too many points for a typical Tom Izzo squad. In those three loses they gave up at least 72 points in each of the games.
On the offensive side of the ball the Spartans are led by freshman guard Miles Bridges. He averages 16.3 points, 8.5 rebounds and 2 assists per game.
For the Spartans to win they need to play better on the defensive side of the court. In games they lose it’s not because they struggle to score, it’s because they can’t stop teams on the defensive end.
On the year the Spartans are 1-3 away from home.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers, like the Michigan State Spartans have really struggled so far this season.
They are 10-11 on the season and sit in 7th place in the Big Ten. They have had a very up and down season so far. They really struggled in non conference and then won their first three conference games.
They now have lost five of their last six games. But their is signs this is going to be another one of their peaks.
In their last game they upset Purdue in a huge win for the Cornhuskers.
For the Cornhuskers to win they need to have a big game on the offensive side of the ball. They need to take advantage of the poor defense that the Spartans seem to play.
