Michigan Basketball: Simpson Knows What It'll Take For UM To Win Today

Michigan State Basketball

One bad mid-January week may be long forgotten by March, but it's nonetheless a surprise given the wealth of talent Michigan State possesses. The Wolverines have been on a roll as of late, winning seven straight games, before a tough, one point loss to No. 5 Purdue gave them their first defeat in league play.

While Wagner finished with a career-high 27 points to lead Michigan to an 82-72 upset win against No. 4 Michigan State at the Breslin Center on Saturday afternoon, Ward was limited to four points. (2) reacts during the first half of a game against the Rutgers Scarlet Knights at Jack Breslin Student Events Center.

It often resulted in drives to the basket or passes back to Wagner, who was 3-for-4 from 3-point range.

MI coach John Beilein was uncertain whether junior center Moritz Wagner was even going to be able to play. "You can't just hone in on one of them, you have to play well against all of them". "That's our opportunity to beat them this year", Winston said. In Thursday's game, only seven players suited up. This program is going to be good and they have to stay the course. However, for a team that believes it's good enough to win the Big Ten and take a shot at the national title, it is a convenient excuse. The Spartans are No. 1 in the country when it comes to keeping their opponent's field goal percentage low, holding them to 34.6 percent.

While Izzo has consistently harped on how much Bridges has improved his game this season, particularly on defense and playmaking for his teammates, the Hall of Fame coach said he wants to see Bridges be more aggressive in regards to him creating plays for himself. That commonality makes this an important game for both teams in terms of the Big Ten race. "Some guys have to grow up a little bit, and they will".

Without their second-leading scorer, the No. 11 Terrapins came out flat and were dealt an 82-68 loss, their first defeat since November 19 and their first to Michigan State in 11 meetings.

Matthews, a transfer from the University of Kentucky, takes the most shots per game of any other Wolverine and has scored in double figures in each of his last eight games. The preseason All-America player opened overtime with a 3-pointer, but ended up with as many turnovers (3) as made shots on 10 attempts and appeared to be frustrated throughout the game. Jericho Sims made a free throw with 5 seconds left, then Texas watched as TCU's Jaylen Fisher missed a layup off the rim at the final buzzer to send the Longhorns to a 99-98 victory over the No. 16 Horned Frogs in double overtime.

Eleanna Christinaki started in Watson's place and the Terps shot 39 percent from the floor and 29 percent from the three-point line, below their usual average of 39 percent from the perimeter. Winston leads the Big Ten, averaging 7.2 assists per game. "We have not been playing within our system".

"It's some what the teams are doing to him", Izzo said, "it's some that this is a unique thing".

"We try to prove every night we're capable of playing the team we're up against and I think tonight we proved that", Sanders said. They let both teams play.

But a comeback would not be in the cards as the Scarlet Knights managed to score just nine points in those final eight minutes.
