Joe looks at the just-released MSU schedule

Mark Konezny-USA TODAY Sports

Last night, MSU released the basketball team's full schedule: Some highlights:

  • Kansas in the Champion's Classic in Chicago at 10:00 PM on 11/17/15
  • Potentially Arizona in the Wooden Legacy Tournament in Anaheim on 11/29/15
  • Louisville (at the Breslin!) in the ACC/Big Ten Challenge on 12/02/15
  • Florida  (also at the Breslin!) on 12/12/15
  • A pretty cushy start to the Big Ten schedule. At Iowa, at Minnesota, vs. Illinois, at Penn State, and vs. Iowa is a nice five-game stretch before traveling to Madison to take on Bo Ryan's animated corpse Badgers.
  • Against contenders: 1/23/16 at home against Maryland , 2/9/16 in West Lafayette against Caleb Swanigan and the Boilers , 2/14/16 at home vs. Indiana (Valentine's Day!)
  • Notice that Maryland, Purdue, and Indiana are all one-plays. This is a favorable schedule.
  • The toughest stretch is probably between 2/6 and 2/23: at Michigan, at Purdue, vs. Indiana, vs. Wisconsin, at Ohio State. A 3-2 or 4-1 record in this stretch would be beneficial.
Overall, this is a full, fun schedule with some nice non-conference matchups at home and neutral sites along with a favorable conference schedule.
