GAME THREAD: Michigan State at Rutgers in Madison Square Garden - Men’s Basketball

MSU travels to Madison Square Garden for round 2 against Rutgers. This game is on a neutral court, which should help the Spartans.

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

Michigan State travels to the famous Madison Square Garden to take on the Rutgers Scarlet Knights.

The first matchup in East Lansing saw Rutgers play tenacious defense and massively out rebound MSU. In the end, poor shooting by Rutgers kept them from challenging down the stretch, and MSU pulled out a 70-57 victory.

This “home game” for Rutgers should feel much more like a neutral court with Spartan fans aplenty at Madison Square Garden.
