Winners of three straight games to get back to .500 in conference play, Michigan State basketball will be staying on the road on Friday night to face the No. 13 team in the country.
Wisconsin just beat Michigan State 70-57 in East Lansing back in December so the Spartans will be out for a little revenge, but it won't be easy in one of the toughest venues to win at in the Big Ten. The Spartans have won two straight at the Kohl Center but winning three in a row against a red-hot team like Wisconsin this year won't be easy.
Let's dive into some bold predictions for the big-time matchup in primetime.
3. Tre Holloman has yet another big game
If you watched Sunday's win at Maryland, you would have seen a career performance from none other than sophomore point guard Tre Holloman. The second-year player from Minneapolis has been getting better with each passing game and I think we're going to see him build on his performance at Maryland with another big game.
Now I'm not predicting a 20-point performance or anything, but I can see him score 10-plus again with a couple of big threes to go along with four assists and no turnovers. Oh, and he'll add a couple of steals on the defensive end.
Holloman is quickly becoming one of the most improved players in the Big Ten this season and when Michigan State needs a win the most, he's going to step up and deliver a massive game.
I'll go with 11 points, four assists, and two steals as his final line.
