Michigan upsets No. 4 MSU

Michigan upsets No. 4 MSU

As the Terrapins rose for the national anthem against Michigan State, sophomore guard Blair Watson stood in her black warm-up suit, leaning on a crutch.

If Michigan can dominate the boards and keep the Spartans from succeeding in transition, they can keep the game close.

That "one game at a time" approach has led MI to a 14-4 record.

Points in the paint were controlled by Maryland, with 32 points, compared to Michigan State's 28.

The game will air live on FOX, with Gus Johnson calling the play-by-play, Jim Jackson serving as the color analyst and Lisa Byington on sidelines.

Michigan State and Michigan can be heard over the 38-affiliate Spartan Sports Network, including flagship stations WMMQ-FM (94.9)/WJIM-AM (1240) in Lansing and WJR-AM (760) in Detroit. Rivalry games bring out the best in teams.

How does this loss affect Michigan State and how will the Spartans replace him? This year they have two freshmen who haven't been a part of the rivalry yet, but even they can tell what it means - to an extent. Freshman Jaren Jackson is the likely culprit, as he's able to defend out on the perimeter. I like the Wolverines down the line, but I look at this as a "wrong place, wrong time" kind of game for them. "But he's a real good player and they have a lot of weapons". That gave the Spartans trouble on Saturday. (2) reacts during the first half of a game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Jack Breslin Student Events Center.

"He's a pick-and-pop guy and it's tough to guard him", Michigan State's Miles Bridges said. He's made 14 of 17 shots from the field (82.4 percent) in those games, including 7 of 8 on his 3-point attempts. He would rather see Bridges create for himself than build on his 3.1 assists per game. "It's no secret - we have all the players we need and the coaches have given us a good scouting report". "But he can take that to the church league 50 years from now".

"I'd rather go right back out there", he said.

"To find a way to win tonight, I think our team deserves more credit for that", head coach Tom Izzo said.

Interior play could be the determining factor in the outcome.

How can I listen to Michigan-Michigan State on the radio? After an at-the-time unranked Michigan State team beat No. 7 Michigan during football season at The Big House, the basketball game is expected to bring the same excitement. "If we follow it and play our game, we'll be fine". It's not a great rivalry unless two teams are really good.

Michigan State: The Spartans have seemed to lose the swagger they earned with a 16-game winning streak that ended with an 80-64 loss to the Buckeyes. "It's gonna be nice". The Terps had 10 turnovers in the first half, four of which came in the final four minutes of the first quarter, took sloppy layups on the move and were loose on the defensive end.
