Michigan State Basketball 12.5-Point Favorites Against Nebraska

The Spartans return home from a long road trip to face Nebraska Saturday night.
Publish date:

East Lansing, MI – Michigan State basketball returns to the Breslin Center to host Nebraska Saturday at 6:30 p.m.

The Spartans are coming off an 84-78 loss to Iowa on Tuesday night, where they played substantially better; however, MSU is on a four-game losing streak dating back to Jan. 8.

"We're coming off a week that no doubt we needed a day off yesterday," MSU coach Tom Izzo said. "The three games in five or six days and staying on the road there … it's been difficult."

MSU enters the matchup with an 8-7 overall record and a 2-7 mark in conference play.

Nebraska is playing for the first time since Jan. 10 due to COVID-19 issues but holds a record of 4-8 (0-5 B1G).
