My beloved Spartans lost to Wisconsin, 64-53, tonight in Madison. Despite the final score the game was competitive and was 48 all with a little under six minutes left. Then MSU collapsed.
That said, you could say except Michigan State played well save for offense, and even there the primary problem the team had was turnovers, offensive fouls and the lack of consistent three point shooting.
In his post-game show, Tom Izzo sounded mad at his players, the officials and Wisconsin.
Unfortunately MSU doesn’t have another game scheduled with Wisconsin. The blame for this should go to Penn State and the conference tournament. Hopefully, however, they will blame in the conference tournament.
MSU needs to figure out a way to win close games down the stretch on a more consistent basis. If they do that, and that’s a very big if, they could do well in March.
The Spartans are now 13-9 on the season and 5-5 in the Big Ten. Their next game is Saturday against Northwestern in East Lansing.
