GAME THREAD: Michigan State vs Indiana State - Men’s Basketball

The Spartans are getting back to playing basketball against a surprisingly good mid major program.

NCAA Basketball: Stony Brook at Michigan State Dale Young-USA TODAY Sports

Michigan State’s men’s basketball is getting back on the court after the holiday break. Their opponent is an old one: Indiana State. The last time these two teams faced off, the Spartans won the game and the 1979 national championship. This game clearly does not have those stakes, but Indiana State is playing very good basketball this year.

This will be a test for the Spartans as they shake off the long rest and adjust to a world without freshman backup point guard Jeremy Fears who was wounded in a shooting while home on break.

Game Time: Saturday, December 30th at 2:00pm (US East Coast Time)
