On Saturday, the 18th-ranked Michigan State Spartans will look to rebound from a disappointing week as they’ll be at home taking on the Illinois Fighting Illini in a Big Ten Conference contest.
After a win over the Purdue Boilermakers, the Spartans suffered their second loss this season to the rival Michigan Wolverines, 79-70. The former number one team in the country needs all the momentum that they can get as we head into the month of March and tournament time rolls around.
Illinois comes in at 16-12 overall on the season and 5-10 in the conference. They also come in on a bit of a roll, having won their last two against the Minnesota Golden Gophers and Nebraska Cornhuskers.
Here’s how you can watch all the action live on Saturday:
Date: Mar. 1
