Michigan State - South Carolina Open Game Thread

Loading Scores

The Spartans have (nearly) the anchor leg in ESPN's College Hoops Tip-Off Marathon with a 10pm game from the Breslin Center tonight. Those of you, like Eamonn Brennan, who are tuning in for the entire event are probably on your fifth 5-Hour Energy by now and will welcome the distraction of this live game thread, assuming your heart palpitations and jittering fingers will allow you to comment coherently. Those of you, like me, with regular jobs that don't involve watching basketball are welcome to join in as well.

Michigan State continues its 2000 National Championship Reunion Series by welcoming the University of South Carolina Gamecocks to East Lansing. These teams last met in November of 1999 in Puerto Rico. That result was a Spartan win, after a bit of a second-half struggle. Assuming Mike Kebler is available, this could be Michigan State's first game at something approximating full strength. KJ previewed the game below and Rexrode's preview is here. Pomeroy is predicting an 80-64 MSU win in 72 possessions, which seems plausible. This will be the last game for almost a week as the team flies off to Hawaii for the Maui Invitational.

In my favorite tidbit from MSU's press release for tonight's game, noted thespian Delvon Roe will be performing in Shakespeare's "As You Like It" at 7:30 at the Wharton Center before heading over to the Breslin Center for the game. How will he manage the transition from treading the boards to pulling them down? ACTING!
