Syndication: Detroit Free Press Nick King / USA TODAY NETWORK

Michigan State opens its men’s basketball campaign against James Madison University. The Dukes are a smaller program but they have played some quality basketball in recent years.

Game Time: Monday, November 6th at 8:30 PM US East Coast Time
