No. 2 men's hoops aim to sweep season series with IL

Josh Reaves drives in Penn State's 79-56 rout of Ohio State on Thursday

No. 2 Michigan State can seal a share of the Big Ten title by beating IL at the Breslin Center, where three seniors will be honored at their last home game. "Memories that will last a lifetime". Currently, the Badgers rank fifth in the Big Ten in points average points allowed at only 67.3 points per game. IL fared well in the first half, trailing by just three, but the second half was all Spartans as they rolled the Illini 81-61.

Michigan Basketball (22-7, 11-5) will play at Penn State (19-10, 9-7) on Wednesday night.

Coach Tom Izzo, likewise, isn't content with winning his eighth Big Ten title. In securing the win, Michigan State guaranteed itself at least a share of the Big Ten regular season title.

Baylor (17-11, 7-8) pulled to within 12 in the second half, but didn't pose a serious threat.

The Fighting Illini (13-16, 3-13) were coming off a win over Nebraska and looked like they were building momentum, competing well enough to trail the Spartans by just three points at halftime.

It was a feel-good night on a campus still reeling because of a crisis over how the school handled allegations against disgraced former sports doctor Larry Nassar.

No. 16 Ohio State routs Rutgers on Senior Night
The Buckeyes had built a 19-point lead coming off an 11-0 run with 5:41 left in the half but then went cold. After jumping out to a 30-11 lead, Rutgers cut the Buckeyes' lead down to just 32-27 at the half.

Hadiya in affidavit to SC
Her husband, however, moved the Supreme Court in appeal. "How can anyone say that she cannot marry X, Y or Z?" It all started when she converted to Islam wishfully and later married a Muslim man.

Illinois' Leron Black had 20 points and Trent Frazier scored 14 on 4-of-13 shooting.

After not scoring in double-figures in the first meeting, Cassius Winston and Joshua Langford both scored that in the second meeting and were significant factors.

The Spartans' bench outscored Illinois' reserves, 42-12. With that in mind, they are likely to be playing with a little extra fire and emotion for this one. We have two scholarships open so we could grow the program with the addition of some recruits. The 2017-18 conference schedule has 34 instances of one-day prep, with 20 occurring after the early-December games.

Michigan State: Despite clinching a share of the conference championship, the Spartans have a lot to play for with an outright title at stake against the Badgers and a chance to improve their seeding for the NCAA Tournament. The coach said it was Winston's idea. The duo also torched IL from the three-point range as Langford shot 3-of-4 from distance, while Bridges was 4-of-7. Doing so consistently has remained an issue all season, and another game that was "winnable" at a point ended as a loss.

After a disappointing performance against the Iowa, in which the potent Hawkeye offense shot a season-best 57.9 percent from the field, the University of Wisconsin women's basketball team takes the road one last time as it travels up to East Lansing, square off against the Michigan State Spartans in the Breslin Center.

"We have other things to accomplish", Izzo said.
