OSU vs Michigan State Preview

Despite all the trials and tribulations that No. 16 Michigan State (21-9, 13-6 Conference) has experienced this season, the Spartans have a shot to win a share of the regular-season conference title when they take on No. 19 Ohio State (21-9, 11-8 Conference) in the Big Ten regular-season finale on Sunday.

The Spartans will need to beat Ohio State to share the title with Wisconsin, who finished with eight straight wins to post a 14-6 conference record.

“For what we have been through, it’s just hard to explain what it means to have the chance to play for a Big Ten championship after the way the last five months have gone,” Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said.

Michigan State rallied from a 19-point deficit their last time out on Tuesday en route to beating No. 20 Penn State on the road, 79-71. The Spartans trailed 46-31 at the break but outscored Penn State 48-25 in the second half.

Spartans junior forward Xavier Tillman Sr. had a game-high 23 points and pulled down 15 rebounds.

Meanwhile, Ohio State has been coming on strong down the stretch, winners of four straight and 9 of their last 11, including a 71-63 win against No. 23 Illinois on Thursday. The Buckeyes trailed by as many as 11 in the first half and were down 37-30 at halftime.

Ohio State junior forward Kaleb Wesson led the charge for the Buckeyes with 19 points and 5 rebounds. Freshman forward E.J. Liddell scored 17 points and had a career-best 11 rebounds.

“We have been a very tough-minded group these last five weeks,” Ohio State coach Chris Holtmann said. “We’ll see if that continues. There’s no permanency to that. You have to bring that each day to practice. That’s a muscle you grow.”

Michigan State will celebrate Senior Day on Sunday, honoring senior guards Cassius Winston and Joshua Langford and redshirt seniors Kyle Ahrens and Conner George in a post-game ceremony.

Coming into today, ESPN’s Bracketology analyst Joe Lunardi had Michigan State as a projected No. 3 seed in the South Region and Ohio State as a projected No. 5 seed in the West Region.

The Big Ten Tournament gets underway this week on Wednesday with the first round. The top four seeds will receive a double-bye into Friday’s quarterfinal round.
