The No. 10 Michigan State Spartans (11-2, 2-0) return to the road and Big Ten play this afternoon as the team visits Welsh Ryan Arena to take on the Northwestern Wildcats (8-2, 1-0).
The bad news for Michigan State fans in this matchup is that junior guard Boo Buie still plays for the Wildcats in Evanston. The good news is that maybe, just maybe, the defense will make sure to avoid giving up yet another repeat high-score performance by Buie.
