Michigan State takes on Northwestern on Thursday night. Here’s how you can watch the game on TV or via online live stream.
The No. 12 Michigan State Spartans travel to Northwestern on Thursday night to do battle with the Wildcats. Michigan State — who had previously lost three consecutive games — was able to right the ship the last time they hit the floor with a 74-65 home win over No. 9 Maryland.
The Spartans enter play on Thursday with a 4-4 conference mark that places them in a tie for seventh place in the conference. Not exactly where they want to end up. Northwestern comes into the game in tenth place in the Big Ten with a 3-5 conference record.
The Wildcats are led in scoring by a pair of 6-3 guards. Sophomore Bryant McIntosh leads the team with 15.1 points per game, and senior Tre Demps follows him with 14.1 points pre game.
The Spartans own a six-game winning streak over Northwestern. Their last defeat came four years ago in January of 2012. In fact, Michigan State has only lost to Northwestern a total of four times since 1987 (53 meetings).
This will be the only regular season meeting between these two teams in the 2015-16 season.
