Big Ten Tournament: Michigan State Spartans vs. Ohio State Buckeyes


Last night, Michigan State squeaked past the Iowa Hawkeyes to win 59-56. Today, they will take on the Ohio State Buckeyes for a chance to take on the Wisconsin Golden Badgers tomorrow. Michigan State will have to keep on Deshawn Thomas today. Adreian Payne, Derrick Nix, Kieth Appling, Gary Harris, and Branden Dawson will play their hearts out tonight.

Each of these teams defended their home turf during the conference season games. The Big Ten Tournament semifinals will see the big five starting. Michigan State won the tip-off, and they are bringing the ball down the court.Harris opens with a missed three-point attempt. After no scoring for the first minute and a half, Appling put the team up on the board with 3.

I’m rooting for the guys today. Let’s cheer them on to take all! It’s March Madness, and anything can happen for the Spartans!

Go Green! Go White!
