How to watch Michigan State-Ohio State in Big Ten game

The Detroit News

Michigan State earned the No. 2 seed for the Big Ten tournament and two days off at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis.

Now the Spartans face an Ohio State team that could have a bit of an attitude. The Spartans destroyed the Buckeyes 91-76 in the regular-season finale on Senior Day last Saturday at the Breslin Center. The Buckeyes opened Big Ten tournament play with a 79-75 win over Penn State on Thursday.

Unlike Michigan, Michigan State doesn’t have to worry about making the NCAA Tournament. However, a good showing in the Big Ten tournament could make the Spartans a lock for a No. 1 seed in the tournament.

Friday’s game begins at 6:30 p.m. on the Big Ten Network.
