Badgers hit road looking for upset over Michigan State

Badgers hit road looking for upset over Michigan State

Michigan State debuted its 12th different starting lineup of the regular season in its 79-69 loss last Wednesday to the Nebraska Cornhuskers.

No. 2 MSU (26-3, 14-2) will square off against the Fighting Illini for the second time this season on senior night.

On Tuesday, the Illinois Fighting Illini fell to the Spartans in East Lansing, Michigan, 81-61. Michigan State opened the second half with a 12-1 run.

Aforementioned, Michigan State has one game left on the regular season slate, before they head into Big Ten tournament play. With the loss, IL drops to 13-16, 3-13 in the Big Ten Conference. Powell again made the first - and accidentally made the second.

Both numbers will not equate to wins, with the lack of talent that this IL team possess.

The Fighting Illini are 4-1 ATS in their last five Tuesday games and 1-4 ATS in their last five games following an ATS win. the under is 5-1 in Illinois' last six Tuesday games, and 28-11-1 in their last 40 overall.

To add on, IL also faced the nation's No. 1 shot-blocking team.

Michigan State was down a whopping 27 points in the Northwestern game, but battled back for a five-point win.

IL comes into this game with a 13-15 record overall. Let's take a look at IL.

Cassius Winston will be looking to have a bounce-back game against IL.

IL allowed the Spartans to shoot 47 percent from the floor, and 40 percent from the perimeter. Guards Taryn McCutcheron and Branndais Age and forwards Lexi Gussert, Victoria Gaines and Taylor Reimer all got the nod for the second game in a row, so perhaps the Spartans have found some consistency in their rotation. One thing that IL did do well was limit Jaren Jackson Jr. Jackson scored 18 points to help No. 16 Ohio State rout Rutgers in Columbus. Noah McCarty had two points and two rebounds.

Unfortunately, Jackson is not the only impact Spartan on the team.

The Spartans can give him his third if they can get their 12th straight win Sunday.

After not scoring in double-figures in the first meeting, Cassius Winston and Joshua Langford both scored that in the second meeting and were significant factors.

Five players are averaging at least 8.1 points per game for IL, they are Black (15.1), Trent Frazier (12.3), Kipper Nichols (9.8), Michael Finke (9.6) and Aaron Jordan (8.1).
