The Spartans and the Wolverines are going to do battle for the second time this year on Sunday, and that action should be fierce. Both teams are still gunning both for a top seed in the NCAA Tournament, but the top seed in the Big Ten Tournament and the regular season Big Ten title as well. It isn’t likely that anyone is going to be able to run down the Indiana Hoosiers, but five teams are still in the race at this point. Either MSU or Michigan is going to be eliminated when this day is over with. The last time these two teams met, the game really was never all that close, as the Spartans won by 23 points in a romp from the get go. The Wolverines are going to want to make amends in this one though, and Michigan State is there for the taking. The Spartans have dropped two games in a row both SU and ATS in the Big Ten, and we wonder if blowing that lead to Indiana might have been the straw that broke the camel’s back on a team that is quite talented, but probably not quite as talented as some of the rest of the teams in this conference. Now that we are back in Ann Arbor, where Michigan has won and covered two straight in this series, we think that the Wolverines are going to shine with a big victory.
