College Basketball 2015, Week Eighteen!

127The Michigan State Spartans bounced back this week with wins in a couple of hard fought and physical battles: at home against Purdue followed by a road victory against Indiana!  The Wildcats of Kentucky finished their conference regular season as the only undefeated men’s team Division 1 college basketball; the Big Ten Conference only has two teams ranked in the top-25: Wisconsin (#6) and Maryland (#8).  Next up for the Spartans this week: The Big Ten Tournament where the Spartans earned a double bye and don’t have to play until Friday night where they will face either Rutgers, Minnesota, or Ohio State.  Go Green!
