Another road game. Another loss
Michigan State lost to Michigan, 60-58, in a game in Ann Arbor that ended moments ago. The team is now 10-8 overall and 2-4 in the Big Ten. Next up is home game on Tuesday against Indiana. At this point the Spartans would be ill-served to lost any game in East Lansing.,
As for the Michigan Game, one could complain about the officiating. O.K. I am going to do that. WOULD IT REALL HAVE HURT THE OFFICIALS ALL THAT MUCH TO CALL ONE OF THE DOZEN OR SO FOULS BY MICHIGAN IN REBOUNDING SITUATIONS DURING THE SECOND HALF AND/OR TO NOT CALL A FOUL ON MSU FOR A LITTLE BUMP?!? The calls would be laughable if this were a topic I could laugh at. That said, the Spartans had a 5 point lead with six and half remaining and waited over six minutes between scoring again and were their usual selves on the free throw line. In other words, they could have easily one the game despite the officiating.
The team is in a very tough situation right now as they aren't that far from being a very good team but they need to make the necessary improvements soon before the season slips away from the them.
