College Basketball, Week Eleven!

Well the Spartans continue to surprise — they beat Minnesota (#24) at home then fell on the road at Ohio State.  The inconsistencies continue.  The Big Ten only has three (3)  teams currently in the AP top-25: Purdue (#17), Wisconsin (#18), and Minnesota (#24).  Will Minnesota’s lossess this week (2) drop them from the top-25?  And, following Baylor’s loss, there is now only one undefeated team remaining among the top-25:  Gonzaga (#5).

Next up for the Spartans: a light week (only one game) — on the road against Indiana (Saturday).    Go Green!
