Big Ten College Basketball Predictions: Michigan State vs. IL 1/22/18

Miles Bridges helped No. 6 Michigan State overcome a game so sloppy, coach Tom Izzo called it "ridiculous".

"I'll tell you, he's a good player", Izzo said. "We've got to hone in on that for sure, playing big teams like that".

Keita Bates-Diop scored 14 of his 20 points in the second half, and No. 13 Ohio State beat visiting Nebraska 64-59 on Monday night, the fourth victory for the Buckeyes in the last 8 days.

On Monday evening, IL sank to a new depth, as they dropped their eighth straight conference game, equaling the worst start in program history in the Big Ten, losing 87-74 at the hands of the No. 6 ranked Michigan State Spartans at the State Farm Center in Champaign.

The Illinois Fighting Illini are looking to reverse their fortunes in the Big Ten with five straight losses to kick off the conference slate following a 75-50 defeat at the Wisconsin Badgers.

Howard Kurtz's New Trump Exposé Is 'Fire and Fury' All Over Again
There was, Kurtz writes , "no longer a need for the meeting". "Nobody in the White House quite knew what to do", Kurtz writes. He further added, "Once the President had committed to 140 characters, he was not going to back off".


"We have to start over completely", head coach Suzy Merchant said. However, U-M would go on a 18-2 run in the next four minutes to extend its lead to 25 points.

IL (10-11, 0-8) matched their worst Big Ten record since an 11-game season in 1906-07, their second in existence.

IL trailed 39-32 at the half, and Michigan State led by as much as 18 points in the second half before the Illini began to mount a late rally. Compared to what I watched Friday night, this was a little different.

IL forced Michigan State into a season-high 25 turnovers.

A 9-2 Spartans run early in the second half stretched the advantage to 12, 48-36. We've got to grow, we've got to understand that's the way the game's played. The 6-7 swingman is the only player in the country averaging at least 16.5 points, 7.0 rebounds, 3.0 assists and 1.0 blocks per game. Am I happy about the loss? Each team pulled in nine offensive rebounds, but Michigan State capitalized with 15 second-chance points.

The deal started when Johnson told ESPN during training camp " if we win a Super Bowl, I'm giving out beer to everyone ". If you're a WVU fan looking for a team to cheer in the Super Bowl , you should take a look at the Philadelphia Eagles .


And Izzo was impressed with IL, but he was just as impressed with his team. "I got open within the offense, my teammates found me and I found a few shots", Nichols said.

"I'm tremendously excited to rejoin and reconnect with the Spartan football family", Treadwell said in a release. "One more to tie it".

Alstork averages 6.3 points and 4.4 rebounds in 23.9 minutes per game.

Izzo, who is 1-11 against Krzyzewski, looked back, shrugged his shoulders and smiled as he turned back toward the court.
