Penn State Nittany Lions

Penn State Nittany Lions came back strong after losing three straight games from January 7-15 with a four-game winning streak. They scored victories over the Ohio State Buckeyes, Michigan Wolverines, Indiana Hoosiers and the latest were against the Nebraska Cornhuskers by 12 points. Against the Spartans, they will ride the lead of Stevens who averages 16.5 points, seven rebounds and 1.2 steals per game. Jones and Watkins are great core players that compliment Stevens but in order to have a chance against the Spartans, they need to dig deep to their bench for production.

L. Stevens F (21 GP 29.5 MIN 16.5 PTS 7 REB 2.1 AST 1.2 STL 1.2 BLK 2.7 TO 45.5 FG% 70.9 FT% 25.4 3P%), M.

Michigan State Spartans

The Spartans currently have talents that are ready to be drafted by the NBA. If not for their one-point loss against the Wisconsin Badgers, this team could have been coming to this game on a three-game winning streak. In their past ten games, this team only lost three games and they currently carry a 16-6 record and at the Breslin Arena, the Spartans won ten of eleven contests. Winston is the best offensive weapon for the team as he averages 18.2 points per game while Tillman and Henry all have good cases to play in the NBA. This team is heavy from top to bottom and they are expected to give the Lions a tough time.
