Michigan State Spartans
It’s almost March; Michigan State has won 11 games in a row and it is one win away from clinching another Big Ten title. Sounds about right.
The Spartans are still not a 1-seed in Joe Lunardi’s latest bracket. How that’s the case I do not know. Michigan State as lost three times all season! Duke early on, at Ohio State and Michigan.
The wins are impressive too: North Carolina by 18 on a neutral floor, Notre Dame by 18 on a neutral floor when it was at full strength, Nebraska by 29, Maryland by 30, Indiana by 28, Purdue and many other Big Ten opponents by lesser double-digit margins. I don’t really get it.
MSU is best when it is penetrating and kicking or posting and cutting. Its defense is superb and for that reason, I think this team is fairly upset-proof, at least in terms of a real big upset like the Middle Tennessee game a couple of seasons ago.
But I’m concerned about the offense, namely Miles Bridges’ shot selection. To me, he still takes too many jump shots. His 5.4 three-point attempts per game this season are too many. If I’m a defense against Sparty, a Bridges three is a successful possession in my mind.
Wisconsin won’t play in the NCAA Tournament for the first time since 1998. It does, however, have one big chance to spoil a fellow rival’s season with an upset in this game.
The Badgers are playing their best basketball right now. They are still riding the momentum of Frank Kaminsky and the upset of Purdue on his jersey retirement night.
Since, Wisconsin has beaten Minnesota and won at Northwestern. It lost by 15 at Michigan State several weeks back but this game has different stakes and I doubt Michigan State makes it easy.
