Michigan State vs Purdue

College Basketball
7:00 PM EST
Rotation #617
Michigan State +5.5 over Purdue (loss)
Michigan State was in total control a few weeks back, but allowed the Boilermakers to go on a run in the final minutes to lose the game by a point  The Spartans have so much talent.  If you look at a team like Duke you can understand why they are struggling, but this Michigan State team has players that have played in the Tom Izzo system for a long time.  There is no reason why this team should be struggling the way they have been.    Purdue is a good team, but they are not going to light up a scoreboard.  I believe the Spartans have the talent to make this game close.  They lack focus, but as long as they don’t lose by more than 2 possessions who cares.  I think these teams are evenly matched and we should see a really close basketball game.  Take Michigan State.
