For the thrid-straight season the Spartans and Boilermakers meet just once in the regular season.

The Spartans enter the game with a four game winning streak and will enter Mackey Arena following a major win over rival Michigan.

These two teams match-up very well as they are the top two teams in the Big Ten in scoring defense, FG% defense, 3FG% defense, rebounding margin and assists.

The Spartans have been getting great play from seniors Denzel Valentine, Bryn Forbes and Matt Costello and a win Tuesday night will help the Spartans continue their march to a strong finish to the regular season before heading to the Big Ten Tournament.
