It's Down to This: MSU vs. UM Open Thread

Loading Scores

Two teams will enter Crisler Arena this afternoon as two sides of the same coin.  The goal is the same for both; a berth in the NCAA tournament.  The Wolverines come in having wildly exceeded expectations.  The Big Ten's youngest team were picked last in the Big Ten in preseason polling, yet find themselves on the verge of making the expanded field of 68 for only the second time since 1998.  The roster is filled with undersized and outmanned players, but have legitimate stars in Darius Morris and Big Ten Freshman of the Year (yes, I said it) Tim Hardaway Jr

Michigan State enters having had a difficult road so far.  Tom Izzo's squad was the preseason #2 team in the country, but have struggled in nearly contest.  Compounding their issues was the dismissal of Junior guard Korie Lucious.  Michigan has already topped Michigan State earlier this year at the Breslin Center, and will look for the season sweep today.

The goal is the same: an NCAA Tournament Berth.  The narratives are wildly different.  It's Michigan State vs. Michigan at Crisler Arena, and this is your open thread.  Game is on CBS, or streaming here.

Go Blue.  Beat Sparty.  Please.
