Michigan State vs. Rutgers - 1/10/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Michigan State vs. Rutgers - 1/10/18 College Basketball Pick, Odds, and Prediction

Whether it was the fact that it was nationally televised or just that it was a home game, Ohio State seemed to have plenty of confidence heading into the game, the kind that you don't usually see when an unranked team goes against the top-ranked team in the country.

"I feel like as a team we have to learn how to deal with those runs", sophomore shooting guard Joshua Langford said. MSU also defeated two AP Top 10 teams (No. 7 MI on October 7; No. 7 Penn State on November 4) and finished 7-2 in Big Ten play, tied for second in the East Division standings.

Before the season, I commented that senior Jae'Sean Tate will be the imperative to the tournament birth of Ohio State; he's living up to that standard. "And that's where it all started". The Knights had a three-game losing streak going but won their last outing versus Wisconsin. Are you really that screwed up that you think we're just some powerhouse that can do all that? "We want to keep striding".

Dantonio won his 100th game as head coach at Michigan State with the victory in the Holiday Bowl and is one of just eight active FBS coaches to own at least 100 victories at his current school.

A late offensive spurt helped Ohio State claim a 41-29 halftime lead as Tom Izzo shouted in frustration. They can thank Holtmann and company for their game plan against the Spartans, one that the Buckeyes seemed to execute nearly perfectly. It was a simple as that. "We ran up against a team that played awfully well, and the place was hopping".

The win was the sixth in a row for the Buckeyes (14-4-4, 7-4-1-0 B1G), who travel to Penn State Jan. 12-13. His previous career high was 27 points against Iowa three days ago.

Kam Williams opened up the second half with a slam, and the Buckeyes never trailed again.

Ohio State closed out the week in Big Ten men's basketball action in a big way Sunday, defeating No. 1 Michigan State, 80-64.

MSU played fairly well for much of the first half before allowing the Buckeyes to make 18 of their last 26 shots in the game. Michigan State will surrender the top ranking, likely to No. 3 Villanova after No. 2 Duke lost on Saturday night.

Ohio State's offense played very well, but their defense was the biggest reason they were able to pull off the upset. Four of Ohio State's five starters notched double digits, including Bates-Diop, who had the best game of his career.

"That's what we came here for, to be on those teams that are always the top teams in the country", he said.

Izzo accepted responsibility for his team's loss of momentum at the end of the first half. The performance was not an outlier for Bates-Diop, who came into the contest averaging 19.3 points and 8.9 boards per contest.

"I thought we were resilient", said Ohio State coach Steve Rohlik. Ohio State fought hard to stay in front of him or move him out of position ("Most of the game they were fouling me", Ward said) to prevent him from getting the ball.

Ohio State hosts Maryland on Thursday.
