The weekend event MSU sports fans have been waiting for is almost here: the Tennessee Tech game is about to tip off. The Spartans have returned from Maui and we hope they've had time to adjust to the time difference. (It's always worse going West-East, IMHO.) Michigan State and Tennessee Tech have played once before, an 80-63 MSU win in December, 2005. KJ's game preview is here and the official Tennessee Tech men's basketball page is here. After the series of nail-biters in Maui, we're hoping for a less stressful non-conference home game today. The only thing of note I have to add to KJ's preview is that Tennessee Tech has a 7-footer of their own, Canadian transfer (from Marquette and JUCO before that) Liam McMorrow. He doesn't start and has 4 points and 9 rebounds in 28 minutes this year.
This post is the place for your in-game comments. We're going to have an unusually large TOC representation in the general area of the Breslin Center for today's game. KJ will be at the game as usual and Josh (intrpdtrvlr) is going to try to score some tickets for himself and family at the arena. I'll be in the general area (Haslett) before returning to Ohio this afternoon. The whereabouts of Pete and LVS are unknown at this time. Enjoy the game!
