The 10-1 and fifth-ranked Michigan State Spartans welcome in the New Orleans Privateers on Saturday for their final out-of-conference match up before they start Big Ten play.
Since losing to North Carolina a few weeks ago, head coach Tom Izzo and the Spartans have seemingly gotten everything back on track as they aim to try and climb their way back up to the number one spot.
One of the reasons for that has been the play of Adreian Payne, who Izzo talked a bit about following their latest victory in which he dropped in 33 points:
“This is probably Adreian Payne’s best game of his life and definitely of his Michigan State career,” coach Tom Izzo said. “We went to him just about every time and he delivered almost every time, with the way he shot from the field, from the 3-point line, from the free throw line, getting nine boards. He did a heck of a job.”
Here’s how you can watch the Spartans aim for another win on Saturday:
