Preview: Michigan State v. Minnesota

Looking for their fourth consecutive win, the Spartans (16-4, 3-2) hope to build on their momentum in the Big Ten and also from their first road win on Saturday as they routed Penn State 91-64 on 28 points from Drew Neitzel.

EAST LANSING - Home-court has been nothing but sweet for Michigan State so far this year, and on Wednesday night they will look to make it a perfect 14-0 at home as Minnesota visits the East Lansing.

Looking for their fourth consecutive win, the Spartans (16-4, 3-2) hope to build on their momentum in the Big Ten and also from their first road win on Saturday as they routed Penn State 91-64 on 28 points from Drew Neitzel.

The biggest thing coach Tom Izzo hopes to do is to put together another two great halves after our last victory and build that momentum.

Izzo knows exactly what his team faces after Wednesday nights contest: a trip to Columbus to play #5 Ohio State followed by a trip to Champaign to face Illinois and then Ohio State visits East Lansing to close out one extreme week of basketball.

Lawrence McKenzie leads the Gophers (7-12, 1-4) in scoring and ranks sixth in the Big Ten, scoring 15.7 points per game. Minnesota ranks second in 3-point field-goal percentage defense (.256).

Minnesota most recently lost to Northwestern, 55-40 in Minnesota.

Marquise Gray is shooting 95 percent from the field in Big Ten contests and his energy on the court and huge dunks electrify the home crowd and his teammates.

The Spartans have out rebounded 16 of their last 20 opponents while tying other opponents in rebounding during that stretch.

The Spartans should take advantage of this weaker Big Ten opponent at home because their schedule gets much tougher in upcoming weeks.

Two games with Ohio State and Wisconsin seem unfair to Tom Izzo in a sense that Illinois only plays those two teams once in conference play this season.

Wednesdays contest will be the only meeting with Minnesota the Spartans have this season, and they face Purdue, Northwestern and Penn State only once as well.

So while Illinois faces the weaker Big Ten teams twice, the Spartans take the heavier road and face the weaker teams once and the conference powers twice.

When it is all said and done, in a time where the NCAA tournament committee stresses conference record, Michigan State's hopes of getting into the tournament might come down to flipping a coin between them and the Fighting Illini.
