2013 Big Ten Championships: Michigan State vs. Purdue


In a few moments, the Michigan State Spartans will be taking on the Purdue Boilermakers in what can be best described as a surprise for all of us here. Last night, the Spartans beat the Penn State Nittany Lions, who they’d not managed to beat during conference play. The winner of today’s game will be the Big Ten Champion.

Today’s starting Spartans are:

  • Jasmine Thomas
  • Klarissa Bell
  • Kiana Johnson
  • Becca Mills
  • Courtney Schiffauer

In yesterday’s game, Becca Mills racked up 16 points for the Spartans against the Lady Lions. The team went on to win 54-46 after a low-scoring yet intense game. Purdue beat Nebraska to make it to the championship game.

Go Green! Go White! Let’s do this all the way!
