Just about 2 years ago (January 15-24, 2017), to Ohio State, Indiana and Purdue.I would totally be on board with many of you feeling good about this one...but MSU has lost 2 in a row. They will be coming into this one with their hair on fire. Has Izzo ever lost 3 games in a row?
Trent bothered Winston a lot last year. As long as the refs don’t let him use the off hand/arm to shove his way to the basket AND we guard against the back door hopefully we can keep within stricking distance.Winston missed a couple at the end of IU. Dealing with Ward and Winston will determine the outcome IMO.
I would like to stay away from the 7-10 seeds, assuming Michigan St and Michigan are 1-2. There is a pretty substantial drop off after those 2 teams IMO. I would feel much better playing Purdue, Wisconsin, Maryland, etc. And hopefully someone else can mess around and knock off the Michigan's."If we come to play" we just may make it to the Big Dance.
We need to figure out a way to get into the top 8 for the B10 Tourney. Samba seems to be the only one that is iffy, rest all have been contributing to some extent. 9, 10 if Samba is ready.
Beat MSU and things become that much more Orange in color.
