ESPN's Prediction For Today's Big Ten Championship Game

ESPN's Prediction For Today's Big Ten Championship Game”

And so it was.

The Spartans' only two losses in conference play en route to an outright Big Ten title came over a seven-day span, as Ohio State stopped their 14-game winning streak on January 7 and MI forced 18 turnovers six days later to send the eventual conference champions to a 82-72 defeat.

If only Yeshiva's first tournament run hadn't just ended. "We just have to get back to the shop and become the team that we can become". "We've had lots of discussion and ways to correct that".

Wagner rebounded in the second half with three consecutive field goals - six of his 14 points in the half - to give MI the lead it would never relinquish.

Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman made a critical three-pointer from long range that hit the back rim and the front rim before bouncing through the net.

Michigan State would get within two points a couple of times and was within 50-47 when Bridges hit a 3-pointer with 8:28 to go. Wagner finished with 15 points.

"Our mood is we're really mad, but like I said, we're not going to let it affect us in the future", Bridges said.

Added Beilein: "It was an ugly three, but it was pretty to MI".

"It's a consistency, " guard Dakota Mathias said of Edwards.

The redshirt sophomore translated that energy to the defensive end with an emphatic block and corralling two, hard-fought rebounds between back-to-back possessions - both of which led to pushing matches after whistles.

"We just didn't do a good enough job on the scouting report", Izzo said. "We weren't backing down". "We're just taking it one day at a time", when no one would really blame him if he took a little more credit. Just past the midpoint of the first half, the Boilermakers struggled, making only one of 10 shots.

The early smack talk was only a temporary reprieve from the overarching malaise of the first half, though. About five minutes later, Wagner hit a 3-pointer and put the Wolverines up, 48-42. Before watching the Spartans play MI in Saturday's semifinals, they planned to see the 9/11 memorial in lower Manhattan.

"Toughness, that's a very subjective thing, I think", Moritz Wagner said after scoring several important second-half baskets and grabbing eight rebounds.

The conference, which began play in 2013 and added Notre Dame before this season, is arguably the deepest league in college hockey, with five of its seven members inside the top 13 of the PairWise rankings and on pace to make the 16-team NCAA tournament through Saturday's games.

While Michigan State desperately wanted to avenge its 82-72 regular season loss to Michigan, the Spartans shouldn't panic over Saturday's loss.

Schofield energized the crowd and capped an 8-0 run with an extra-effort steal that led to a one-handed dunk to cut Georgia's lead to 45-44 with 13 minutes left in the second half.

Miles Bridges had 17 points to lead Michigan State before fouling out late.

And when the Wolverines cushioned their lead and the call came for a comeback, the Spartans couldn't do what they needed to do. Now Michigan's playing well, defending on the interior - and not even turning the ball over.

Edwards may have received consensus first-team all-Big Ten honors, but by the final buzzer Sunday evening, there's a chance he will start receiving the additional hype he deserves. Their scheme was simple: work it to Haas in the middle and if he couldn't get to the hoop, dish it out to any of Purdue's deadly perimeter shooters.
