The Michigan State Spartans make it 14 in a row with an overtime win against the Wisconsin Badgers 63-60 on Tuesday night.
Derrick Nix and the 19th-ranked Spartans will go for their 10th straight victory overall and 62nd in a row at home over an unranked, non-conference opponent when they host UMKC on Monday night.
Former Michigan State coach Jud Heathcote was on hand to watch the Spartans handle a hostile crowd and send Gonzaga to only its seventh loss at its campus gym since 2004.
The Spartans get a confidence booster beating the Arkansas-Little Rock Trojans 69-47 Sunday at Breslin Arena.
Jahvid Best once again missed practice today and will not play Sunday in order to make room on the roster for Malone. Tackle Jason Fox was placed on injured reserve after reaggravating a knee injury yesterday at practice.
Hopefully for the Spartans, The Carrier Classic will be an “instant classic” and they can make a good showing. My only question is, who has to get the ball if it bounces overboard?
