The Michigan State Spartans men’s basketball program dropped two spots in both polls this week after losing to a ranked Wisconsin team at home on Tuesday, and then defeating the Indiana Hoosiers at the Breslin Center on Saturday. The Spartans come in at No. 19 in both the Associated Press Poll and the USA TODAY Ferris Mowers Coaches Poll this week.
