The Michigan State men’s basketball team is coming off of a tough loss to Alabama in the Phil Knight Invitational (PK85) event played in Portland, Oregon. MSU, which went into the season with only 10 scholarship players, is battling through some key injuries to forward Malik Hall and guard Jaden Akins.
However, the last time Michigan State played at home at the Breslin Center, the Spartans came away victorious. MSU held off a late charge from the Villanova Wildcats to win by a final score of 73-71.
Coincidently, it is possible that Michigan State and Villanova meet again on Sunday in the consolation bracket of the PK85.
