One week later and that sour taste left from a bad loss at Penn State still lingers for Michigan State.
Finally, the Spartans return to the court hosting Northwestern tonight at the Breslin Center, where they are 13-0 this season.
The Wildcats are last in the Big Ten and are still looking for their first conference win of the season.
The loss to the Nittany Lions dropped MSU one game back of first in the Big Ten with nine games left to go.
Halfway through the conference season, and seniors Drew Neitzel and Drew Naymick have high hopes of a Big Ten title in their sight.
For that to happen, MSU will have to win some big games down the stretch, including a tough week coming up with games at Purdue and Indiana.
But first their focus will be on Northwestern tonight, a team that MSU beat 78-62 on Jan. 24.
The two MSU seniors talked about the tough road ahead and their chances at the Big Ten title.
Note: With a win, MSU will improve to 20-3, marking coach Tom Izzo's ninth 20-win season in 11 years as MSU coach.
