Big Ten Conference

Michigan State expects rust, seeks response as it re-enters Big Ten fray vs. Rutgers

The last time Joey Hauser (pictured) and Michigan State played Rutgers, the Spartans rolled to a 68-45 victory.

Add in the three-week break and some uncertainty of who will be available and how the layoff has affected the rest of the team, it’s fair to wonder how likely it is the Spartans string together some wins with the next three games all coming on the road.

Rutgers ended that skid over the weekend with a four-point win at Indiana, and now looks to beat Michigan State for the first time in program history.

For two teams that entered the season expecting to compete for the Big Ten championship, getting a win on Thursday will be critical.

… Michigan State will be without junior Gabe Brown because of COVID-19 issues, while freshman Mady Sissoko and senior Joshua Langford are questionable.
