Big Ten Tournament Bracket: When MSU, Michigan Will Play

Iowa Guard Conner Mc Caffery #30 dribbles down the court during a mens basketball game between the Iowa Hawkeyes and the Nebraska Huskers at Pinnacle Bank Arena on Sunday

In the second half, with just over ten minutes to go, Michigan State took the lead with a three pointer from Cassius Winston that banked in off of the backboard, part of his game-high 23 points on the night. A win Saturday will give either of the Michigan-based programs at least a share of the Big 10 title entering the league tournament.

Michigan also failed to slow down Winston almost two weeks ago when he had 27 points and eight assists in Michigan State's 77-70 win. Their late-season key losses came against Michigan, Michigan State, Illinois, and Penn State. He knocked down some treys and threw down a slam dunk, sending the signal that it might be Michigan's night.

Ignas Brazdeikis scored 20 for the Wolverines, but he fouled out with 5:10 left in the game.

As a MI basketball fan, it's hard to be anything but frustrated and here is a look at three things we learned from the difficult loss in East Lansing.

Now, the model has locked in on Michigan vs. Michigan State.

The Wolverines have one of the top defenses in the nation, as MI is giving up just 58.3 points per game this season while holding opponents to 39.9 percent shooting. Michigan State was also able to grab 11 offensive rebounds compared to Michigan's four. It looked like MI was going to open things up and put the Spartans away.




Michigan State went on a huge scoring run which was accompanied by yet another long Michigan scoring drought.

They still have an elite defense, but their offense needs to figure out a way to get better looks.

Michigan State: The first-seeded team will open the conference tournament quarterfinals Friday. The Spartans out-rebounded MI 46 to 20. It was their 13th win in their last 14 games.

"This is point guard heaven - Michigan State", said Cleaves, who led the school to a second national title in 2000 after Magic Johnson won its first in 1979. If Michigan could have rebounded with some more urgency the outcome of this game could have been completely different. He has been a force in the paint this season, averaging 14 points and 10.5 rebounds. Zavier Simpson, the six-foot point guard had the same amount.

The rivals split their regular-season games this season with each team winning at home. His players, hats turned backward, dressed in their new Big Ten championship T-shirts, stood off to the side, ready for the celebration to ensue.

This year's Big Ten Tournament will get underway in a few days.
