What you need to know about Michigan State

Michigan State is now riding a seven-game winning streak following a comeback effort against Northwestern on Sunday. The Spartans trailed by 13 points, but they were able to erase the deficit and put together a late run to seal the win. Leading scorer Gabe Brown scored 15 of his 20 points in the second half, knocking down a huge 3-pointer in the final minute. 

Michigan State shot just 1 of 10 from 3-point range in the first half, but it connected on 6 of 13 attempts following intermission. The Spartans have a rivalry game against Michigan on deck, so they will be looking to avoid a letdown performance on Wednesday night. They have now covered the spread in four of their last five games. 

What you need to know about Nebraska

Nebraska came up short against Ohio State on Sunday, falling 87-79 in overtime. The Cornhuskers led by five points in the final minute of regulation, but they missed two important free throws down the stretch to open the door for Ohio State. A silver lining for Nebraska was the play of forward Derrick Walker, who recorded a double-double with 15 points and 10 rebounds. 

This will be Nebraska’s first road game since it traveled to then-No. 18 Auburn on Dec. 11. Freshman guard Bryce McGowens leads the Cornhuskers with 15.8 points and 5.9 rebounds per game, while senior guard Alonzo Verge Jr. is scoring 15.6 points and dishing out 5.8 assists. Nebraska is winless in its last eight games against Michigan State.
