Michigan State men’s basketball is in Champagne, Illinois looking for its first true road win of the season. Their opponent, the Fighting Illinoli are talented but without their long time leader Terrence Shannon Jr. In his absence, the Illini have crushed Northwestern by thirty (a team that just beat Michigan State) and lost a tight game at Purdue.

The Spartans have a lot to prove in this game.

Game Time: Thursday, January 11th at 9:00pm (US East Coast Time)
