What to Know
The Michigan State Spartans and the Maryland Terrapins are set to clash at 6:30 p.m. ET March 10 at Gainbridge Fieldhouse in the second round of the Big Ten Tourney. MSU should still be riding high after a victory, while the Terrapins will be looking to right the ship.
MSU is hoping for another win. They were able to grind out a solid win over Maryland on Sunday, winning 77-67. Forward Malik Hall and forward Marcus Bingham Jr. were among the main playmakers for MSU as the former had 17 points and the latter dropped a double-double on 12 points and 11 boards.
Barring any buzzer beaters, MSU is expected to win a tight contest Thursday. Those playing the odds have seen things go back and forth with the Spartans, who are 15-16 against the spread.
A pair of stats to keep an eye on: MSU is 25th worst in college basketball in takeaways, with only 10.7 on average. The Terrapins are completely their equal: they are stumbling into the game with the 25th fewest takeaways in college basketball, having accrued only 10.7 on average. It's possible one of these Achilles' heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
