No. 1 Michigan State Spartans Top Maryland Terrapins, 91-61

Share

But an upset of that magnitude will be a tall order. After the timeout in the second, I thought our guys worked a little bit harder. They knocked off a ranked Minnesota team at home in December and are coming off a Tuesday road win against Northwestern.

In the second half, the Spartans continued their hot shooting from all areas of the floor.

Michigan State ranks first in assists per game (21.9) while Maryland ranks 106th (14.9). In program history, the Buckeyes are 8-11 against top-ranked opponents.

Stacked Michigan State looks like a favorite to return to the national semifinals for the first time since 2015, when Wisconsin gave the Big Ten a Final Four twosome. Johnson has two of the nation's five 20-20 games this season.

But those upsets came when Thad Matta was the head coach.

Another surprising aspect of the game was the play of the bench.

The competition hasn't been as stiff as it will be Sunday, though. Something I hadn't seen him do myself.

Both of these teams are great at blocking the ball.

If this is what Michigan State plays like with a No. 1 ranking, it could be a long winter for the rest of the Big Ten. "We're playing our arch-rival in Purdue so we're really excited about that and we're pumped up".

His team's first practice as the No. 1 team in the country showed no letdown, and he hopes its first game won't either. "This is the biggest game of the year for us and we're really looking forward to getting at it". Ghatt sent the puck to Milan at the point, who sent it to Hirose at the left post, who found Khodorenko to draw Michigan State within one at 5-4. The Spartans bludgeoned the Tar Heels 63-45 in November, and the Buckeyes were 86-72 losers in December. The 6-9, 270-pounder is averaging 11.9 points and 4.9 rebounds in 22 minutes per game, and he can be downright dominant when he stays out of foul trouble.

Nick Ward went an impressive 6 of 8 from the field to finish with 16 points and five rebounds and Miles Bridges added 15 points, seven assists, six rebounds and two blocks in the win. The lead ballooned from there, ending in a 91-61 final and Michigan State's fifth straight blowout victory.

"That's another weapon we have that has not been exploited yet", Izzo said.

Warriors buckle down and beat the Bucks
Its usually precise three-point shooting was lacking with just five makes on 15 attempts, but that didn't slow down the offense. The Warriors outscored the Bucks 28-12 in the fourth quarter, with Milwaukee shooting only 5-of-20 (25 percent) from the field.

The talented Bridges turned down a chance to go one-and-done in the offseason. Sophomore F Nia Hollie, who played at Hopkins, is averaging 4.0 points and 2.7 rebounds. Five Spartans are scoring in double figures.

But while Cowan (26 points) and Huerter (16 points) looked like they belonged on the same court as Michigan State's constellation, Maryland's lack of depth caught up with it by the late stages of the first half. "If I told you that they would scout that", Ward said. "Just making sure I play both ends", Jackson said. The Terrapins made just seven of 25 attempts in the second half.
