Michigan State hosts Maryland in a showdown that could determine Big Ten seedings and even the NCAA tournament. 

NCAA Basketball: Big Ten Conference Tournament- Maryland vs Michigan State Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

The Michigan State Spartans host the Maryland Terrapins at Breslin Arena. The two squads are relatively evenly matched on paper, but their seasons are going in different trajectories.

Maryland has won 5 of their last six while Michigan State has lost 6 of their last 8. It may be early February, but this game could be hugely important to Big Ten Tournament seeding, and will definitely play a role in shaping each team’s case for the NCAA Tournament.

Game Time: Tuesday, February 7th at 9:00pm (US East Coast Time)
