The No. 17 Michigan State Spartans (17-5, 8-3) return to the Breslin Center for three of the next four games after playing four of the last five on the road. To kick the homestand off, MSU welcomes the No. 14 Wisconsin Badgers (18-4, 9-3) to East Lansing. After suffering a tough home loss to Northwestern last month, Michigan State defeated Wisconsin in Madison 86-74. The Spartans are coming off an even more brutal road loss this time to Rutgers.
