MSU, Michigan to face each other in Big Ten Tournament

Michigan State basketball: Spartans not as vulnerable as they appear

Sophomore forward Miles Bridges had 17 points and seven rebounds before fouling out for the top-seeded Spartans (29-4). The Spartans will face MI this afternoon at 2 in the first semifinal game. The Wolverines won the tourney previous year.

I said it yesterday that MI is just a different team come conference tournament time, kinda like UCONN of past years and like their team that won the tournament last year after having to play in their practice jerseys when their plane skidded off of the runway before their first game. The Spartans shot 38.1 percent.

Senior swingman Duncan Robinson said this year feels like 2017 when the Wolverines won the tournament as the No. 8 seed, the lowest seed to win the event. Abdur-Rahkman and Simpson then converted layups to give MI a seven-point lead with 7:16 to play.

Davidson pulled off a 63-61 win over No. 17 Rhode Island on Jon Axel Gudmundsson's driving layup with 3.1 seconds left.

MI fought off the charge and led 69-59 after Robinson's basket with 1:10 to play before closing it out.

The Boilermakers will be making their third appearance in the Big Ten championship since the tournament started in 1998. The win snapped a three-game losing streak for Penn State and set up a quarterfinal game on Friday against No. 13 and second seeded Ohio State. The sophomore guard hit 9 of 18 shots and tied a season high by sinking six 3-pointers.

MI will play third-seeded Purdue (28-5) today as the five-day tournament ends at Madison Square Garden. Purdue won both meetings by a combined five points in January. MI can become the first Big Ten program to win back-to-back conference tournaments since Ohio State did so in 2010 and 2011. As a team, Purdue is scoring 81.7 points per game on 49.8% shooting from the field, 42.1% from behind the arc which is the 3rd-best 3-point percentage in D-I and 74.6% from the foul line this season. Dakota Mathias chipped in 15 for Purdue. The Nittany Lions defeated Ohio State 65-57, while Purdue knocked off Rutgers 82-75.

Lamar Stevens added 14 but Tony Carr struggled most of the game.
