If you could only pick a few games to watch on Saturday night, this is definitely one of the ones that you’re going to want to make sure is on your tube. The Buckeyes and the Spartans are both remarkably balance clubs that have the ability to score points in bunches and shut you down on the other end of the court. We think that the Bucks have the ever so slightest advantage in this one, though. F Deshaun Thomas is one of the best big men in America, and there just isn’t a man on the other side of the court that is going to be able to keep him from scoring at least 15-20 points, if not more in this one. The Buckeyes also want to prove to themselves that they can go on the road and pull off an upset after getting clocked by the Illinois Fighting Illini two weeks ago at Champaign. For as well as Michigan State normally plays at home, the road team in regular season games between these two has found a way to cover six straight over the last three years. Don’t be shocked if the Buckeyes pull off the upset, though we know that we want the points on our side regardless, knowing that the last two in this series have been decided by a grand total of just six points.
