Michigan State Athletics

Another Top 5 Showdown for Michigan State

The 3rd-ranked Purdue Boilermakers and the 4th-ranked Michigan State Spartans will battle on Saturday at Breslin Center. Tip-off is set for 4 pm EST. ESPN will have the broadcast.

Oddsmakers opened the Spartans as -2.5-point favorites versus the Boilermakers, while the game’s total opened at 148. The total has held steady, but the line has crept up to Michigan State -3.

Michigan State has already been involved in two battles with top five teams this season. The Spartans will do it again Saturday afternoon in a crucial Big Ten showdown. The Spartans were ranked No. 2 and lost to then-No. 1 Duke. They were ranked No. 3 in late November and blew out then-No. 5 Notre Dame.

Michigan State Looking for 8th Straight Win

Michigan State has more big-game experience. The Boilermakers have more veteran players. The Spartans start four sophomores and a freshman. Purdue starts four seniors and a sophomore. Something is gonna give Saturday afternoon.

Michigan State was a 96-93 winner in its last match on the road against the Iowa Hawkeyes. They failed to cover the -10-point spread as favorites.

Michigan State is looking to extend its seven-game winning streak. In the win on Tuesday the Spartans got 25 points from sophomore forward Miles Bridges. Bridges is scoring at 17.7 points a clip.

 

Purdue Coming off First Conference Loss

Last time out for Purdue, they were a 64-63 loser as they battled the Ohio State Buckeyes at home. They failed to cover in the match as a -10-point favorite.

The Boilermakers had their bid for a perfect conference season derailed on Wednesday. The loss also snapped Purdue’s school-record 19-game winning streak.

Guard Carsen Edwards scored a career-high 28 points against the Buckeyes. He leads the Boilermakers at 17.0 points per game. Purdue also has a solid frontcourt duo. 6-foot-8 Vincent Edwards pours in 15.3 points a game and adds 7.8 rebounds. 7-2 Isaac Haas is chipping in 14.7 points and 5.3 rebounds.

The Boilermakers hadn’t lost since losing on back-to-back nights to Tennessee and Western Kentucky in the Battle 4 Atlantis tournament in November.
