The Michigan State Spartans are winners of 5 straight after dropping their opening game to the #1 ranked Duke Blue Devils. Michigan State is lead by their Sophomore forward Miles Bridges who is battling through an ankle injury. This is Michigan State’s 3 ranked opponent in their first 7 games. They beat #9 North Carolina 63-45, their defense looked impenetrable and with Bridges given a couple days to rest that ankle Michigan St is looking to show why they should be one of the best teams in the country.
Notre Dame comes into this one undefeated on the young season after an absolute thrilling 67-66 win over the #8 Wichita St Shockers. Notre Dame returned some key players from last year including NCAA tournament stand out Bonzie Collins. Notre Dame is gonna have its hands full with The Spartans tonight regadless and It does them no favors to have to go to Michigan St, one of the top atmospheres in all of college basketball.
Michigan State is a 6 point favorite heading into this game. I fully expect them to win by double digits, the game will be close until the end where the depth and talent advantage of Michigan St. will see them come out victorious.
Final Score: Michigan State 72 Notre Dame 61
