Big Ten Conference

Know Thy Enemy: Michigan State goes for 2nd round at Purdue

This weekend State News sports reporter Sara Tidwell spoke with Alex Sabri of The Purdue Exponent ahead of the Spartans' matchup with the Boilermakers.

The Boilers will have to continue working on their ability to find those good shots, especially later in the game, if they want to keep propelling forward in the Big Ten standings and be serious contenders in the future.

As a younger team, the Boilermakers are going to have to continue to build upon their ability to close out games and get past tough stretches when things aren't going their way.

Four freshmen have already won the Big Ten Freshman of the Week award ... including two wins from guards Brandon Newman and Jaden Ivey.

For MSU to win this game, they'll have to play strong defense against Purdue's top options and keep them from gaining any kind of consistent rhythm in the paint or at the 3-point line.

After a 30-point deficit caused yet another heartbreaking loss against Iowa in their rematch over the weekend, Michigan State men's basketball has put it in park in West Lafayette, Indiana, to take on Purdue at 7 p.m. on Tuesday.
