The Wolverines (14-4, 3-2 Big Ten) had their seven-game winning streak snapped on Tuesday with a 70-69 loss against No. 5 Purdue in the first of back-to-back games against Big Ten conference favorites and top-5 ranked teams.

Maryland had more second-chance points with 13, compared to Michigan State's 12. It wasn't enough to prevent the Wolverines from suffering their first home loss of the season. The Spartans dropped another conference game Saturday, falling 82-72 to MI in East Lansing. This is the only meeting between the teams in this regular season.

And, there wasn't anything Michigan State players or fans could do about it. Tipoff is slated for noon at the Breslin Center.

The fight is expected to be announced for the end of March in Cardiff's Principality Stadium if the final negotiations go according to plans.

His evaluation was Michigan State "failed miserably on that".

"After much thought and consideration, I have made a decision to transfer from Michigan State University", Jackson posted.

The major stat to watch out for in this game is Michigan's field goal percentage.

Michigan State's aggressiveness unsettled the Terps from the start. Maryland shot 36 percent from the floor to Michigan State's 43 percent from the field at intermission, compounding poor offense with uncharacteristic errors. Matt Shepard provides the play-by-play, and Terry Mills is the analyst. Four-star Spartans basketball signee Marcus Bingham Jr. also took in the game with his family.

He added: "Mauricio's strategy has always been if an opportunity arises he thinks can improve the squad, then we are willing to look at it".

The two teams share one thing in common: a road loss at Ohio State.

This rivalry is close in all-time matchups with Michigan State taking the 64-60 edge. And considering how the Big Ten is this season, the Spartans should just run rough-shot through the league. This program is going to be good and they have to stay the course.

The Spartans had won five in a row in the series before Michigan's victory in the Crisler Center last February. Averaging 13.8 points, she was particularly unsafe from the perimeter, where she led the team with 63 three-pointers in 17 games and shot 44.1 percent from beyond the arc. Michigan forced Michigan State into 21 turnovers, and that would be a good recipe for the Wolverines in this game, too.

WHO IS NEXT: Michigan State will get yet another home game when it welcomes IN on Friday. The Wolverines this year are in the same spot Michigan State was a year ago, looking to find a primary point guard on a consistent basis. Winston leads the Big Ten, averaging 7.2 assists per game. While Wagner and Matthews are not coming in off of their best games, 11 points in 29 minutes for Wagner, 5-of-14 shooting for Matthews, they both are capable of giving the Spartans fits.
