Men’s Basketball: Michigan State at Ohio State Game Thread

Syndication: Lansing State Journal Nick King/Lansing State Journal via Imagn Content Services, LLC

The Michigan State Spartans (19-10, 10-8) conclude a two-game road trip tonight in Columbus against the No. 23 Ohio State Buckeyes (18-9, 11-7). The game marks the lone matchup during the regular season between the two programs this year. Ohio State fell to Nebraska Tuesday night in Columbus and at Maryland on Sunday.

The Spartans, meanwhile, got absolutely shellacked by hated rival Michigan on Tuesday night in pathetic fashion.
