MSU will focus internally as it prepares for unpredictable Nebraska
East Lansing — As Big Ten basketball gets rolling again, it’s safe to say there are few, if any, sure things.
Maybe it speaks to a conference’s strengths or perhaps its weaknesses. But as the calendar has turned, t's clear easy victories will be few.
That was true back in December when Big Ten teams worked in a couple of games. Then-No. 1 Purdue lost at Rutgers, at that time a .500 team that had lost four of five games, three coming against mid-majors. Michigan also lost at home to Minnesota.
