Michigan State defeats Michigan to claim second consecutive Big Ten title

Michigan State defeats Michigan to claim second consecutive Big Ten title

Winston was 1 of 8 before making five straight shots in the second half, including a 3-pointer to give Michigan State its first lead midway through the second half. A win Saturday will give either of the Michigan-based programs at least a share of the Big 10 title entering the league tournament.

Cassius Winston, the Michigan State Spartans point guard, has suffered tendinitis in his knees for over a month. He knocked down some treys and threw down a slam dunk, sending the signal that it might be Michigan's night. He also battled foul trouble throughout the whole game and ended up fouling out with five minutes left in the game.

As a MI basketball fan, it's hard to be anything but frustrated and here is a look at three things we learned from the difficult loss in East Lansing.

Winston opted for rival Michigan State, where he contributed more as a passer than a scorer his freshman year.

You can start a free seven-day trial right here, and you can then watch a live stream of MI vs MSU on your computer via the Sling TV website, or on your phone (Android and iPhone supported), tablet, Roku, Apple TV, Amazon Fire TV, Chromecast, Xbox One, or other streaming device via the Sling TV app. MI was 10 of 18 on 3-pointers, had 11 steals and forced 15 turnovers.

With a top-10 preseason ranking, Michigan State went into 2018-19 with high expectations.

So who wins Michigan State vs. Michigan? They also need to shoot the ball better.


Playing as they did against Michigan State tonight is a recipe for disaster come tournament time.

Charles finished with 22 points as the Terrapins (28-3) advanced to their fifth consecutive Big Ten Tournament title game.

Bruno Fernando has 20 double-doubles this season. This is a rivalry game with a ton relying on the final outcome.

Michigan: Charles Matthews, who almost 12 points a game, missed his third straight game. Zavier Simpson, the six-foot point guard had the same amount.

Michigan has played well on the road this season, Michigan State only has one loss at the Breslin Center (Indiana).

This year's Big Ten Tournament will get underway in a few days.

Hopefully, they can use this to fuel them into another run at the Big Ten tournament title. Not only was it Senior Day for the Spartans but the victor of this contest would be co-champions of the Big Ten regular season.
