The two teams will face each other again on Saturday night at 7pm at the Kohl Center. MSU held a 10-point lead at one point in the half, but after the Scarlet Knights cut the deficit to seven, they took a 32-25 lead with them into the locker room. It wasn't enough to prevent the Wolverines from suffering their first home loss of the season.

Nairn is averaging just 2.2 points, but a career high 4.1 assists per game this season. This is the only meeting between the teams in this regular season. They kept battling back, though, and took a brief lead in regulation and another in the extra period before the Spartans were able to go ahead for good at the Breslin Center in East Lansing, Michigan.

Michigan State's aggressiveness unsettled the Terps from the start.

The Michigan-Michigan State game will be shown on FOX.

"We have another great opportunity against a top team in Michigan State, and we'll try not to make the same mistakes against them".

The Michigan-Michigan State game can be watched online at FoxSportsGo.

Michigan State and Michigan play at noon ET on Saturday, January 13. Matt Shepard provides the play-by-play, and Terry Mills is the analyst.

Izzo is clearly not happy with his team after the loss to Ohio State and the poor showing against Rutgers, but he is still quite confident about his team.

Michigan State had its long win streak snapped this weekend in an 80-64 loss at Ohio State on Sunday.

Shortly after the announcement was made, the Longhorns played one of their best games of the season in beating TCU 99-98. Izzo has had his ups and downs in the series, but MSU has won five of the last six against MI. He's shooting a career-low 35.6 percent from beyond the arc and is just 4-for-16 over the last four games.

Michigan State had their best run in the 3rd Quarter with 2:42 on the clock. Michigan State plays a moderate 72.6 possessions per game, but Michigan is one of the slowest in the nation, running just 68.2.

Michigan has been tabbed as a 9.5 point underdog heading into this afternoon's contest at Michigan State. MSU has covered in five of its last six games. The Knights are now 11-6 overall, 1-3 in the Big Ten and 6-3 against the spread. Winston leads the Big Ten, averaging 7.2 assists per game.

Michigan doesn't have the depth and experience as Michigan State does, but it has a pair of freshmen in Isaiah Livers and Jordan Poole who can provide an immediate spark and completely change the complexion of the game. Sophomore Kaila Charles led the game with 11 rebounds.

With a star like Brunson averaging 19.4 points, 5.2 assists and shooting 59.0 percent from the field, and a new commitment on the team to defensive play, the Wildcats are playing their best basketball of the season and they are on the road to a memorable year. However, a year ago was an outlier as the games between these two teams average a 1.3 point differential in favor of the Spartans. Michigan State has the nation's best field-goal percentage defense (.345) and two of the league's best shot blockers in Jackson and Nick Ward, but it remains to be seen whether Michigan can find someone to match up with Jackson and keep Ward from establishing deep post position.
