It's March, and Ohio State would like nothing more than an upset victory in East Lansing against the Michigan State Spartans. They put up a good fight the last time these two teams faced each other, but the talent and onslaught by the Spartans was too much, and ended up in an 81-62 Michigan State victory.
An Ohio State win would give the Buckeyes another resume boosting victory after their most recent against Iowa this past Sunday, but it would also keep Thad Matta's streak alive. The Buckeyes' coach has not had a season with less than 20 wins. This won't be the Buckeyes final chance, with the Big Ten Tournament coming up, but it would definitely be a sweet way to clinch it.
Michigan State enters this game having won five games in a row, and nine of their past 10, with their only loss coming in an overtime bout with Purdue, 82-81. It'll be Senior Day in East Lansing, so the Buckeyes should expect a strong and emotional performance from the Spartans, as if they needed any more of an edge.
