EAST LANSING – Michigan State basketball isn't back on the bubble yet. 

The Spartans need an impressive run to get back in the committee's good graces and extend its NCAA Tournament streak. 

However, a nine-point victory over Illinois Tuesday night was a right step in the direction, but Ohio State, a team who blew MSU out, will be in town on Thursday. 

Spartan Nation publisher Hondo S. Carpenter, Sr., and Spartan Nation senior writer Jon Schopp discuss what's next for MSU basketball. 

Who would have thought a win against Indiana, one of the Big Ten's middling squads, would put MSU on the right track?  

But here we are, and if Michigan State can string a few more wins together, anything can happen. 

"We was playing good defense, we were sharing the ball, ball was moving, we were locked into the scouting report and the preparation that the coaches put before us," MSU team captain Aaron Henry said. 

The junior captain has been asked to do a lot but realizes what's expected of him and continues to lead. 

Recently, Michigan State has focused on team chemistry, citing on multiple occasions the slogan for weeks has been "connectivity."
