(AP) — Michigan State coach Tom Izzo insists his team has yet to play its best basketball, though it’s probably time it reaches its full potential with a tough slate looming.

Izzo hopes the 18th-ranked Spartans don’t play down to their competition as they visit struggling Penn State on Wednesday night.

Michigan State’s solid record (14-3, 3-1) has helped mask its overall inconsistency. It ranks last in the loaded Big Ten averaging 14.8 turnovers and has experienced some close calls against seemingly inferior teams, most recently pulling away late for a 66-56 win over Nebraska on Sunday.
