The Michigan State spartans are set to square off with the Michigan Wolverines in the semifinals of the Big Ten Tournament at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

The Spartans made it to Saturday’s action after a wild win over Wisconsin in the quarterfinals. Junior guard Matt McQuaid hit a three-pointer with 1:29 left to give Michigan State team a five-point lead, and they held on for a 63-60 win over the No. 9 seed Badgers.

The No. 5 seed Wolverines made it this far thanks to a 77=58 win over No. 4 seed Nebraska in Friday’s action.

Michigan State is ready for revenge after a 82-72 home loss to Michigan earlier this season. The Spartans are 13-0 since that defeat, but all they care about now is being 1-0 vs their hated rivals in the 2018 Big Ten Tournament.

Today’s game will tip off on CBS at 2 pm EST.
