1. That’s an important win over Michigan, even if not a great performance by MSU

Not a classic, but a legacy game for Michigan State’s basketball team of sorts, its seniors especially. A game that, had it been lost, they’d be remembered for never having won in Ann Arbor. And the vibes … well, they don’t have to think about now.

MSU beat Michigan, 73-63, on Saturday night at Crisler Center because the Spartans were the more poised team in the end, the team with more defensive purpose, the backcourt with better hands, helping to force 22 Wolverine turnovers — 15 of them steals — which led to 27 MSU points.
