The second-year transfer from Kentucky, Charles Matthews, is the leading scorer for the Wolverines, averaging 15.6 points and 5.1 rebounds per game. Senior guard Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman has scored at least 16 points twice against Michigan State and is at his best when he's able to get downhill on offense.
Ohio State (14-4, 5-0) is one of two remaining undefeated teams in the Big Ten and are coming off two dominant wins, a 16-point triumph over then-No.
Miles Bridges ended his scoreless start with 7:43 left in regulation and finished with 11 points to help No. 4 Michigan State bounce back from a loss with a 76-72 overtime victory over Rutgers on Wednesday night at East Lansing, Mich.
Guard Taryn McCutcheon led Michigan State with a career-high 25 points on a career-high six 3-pointers, including two in a 27-second span in the third quarter that turned a four-point margin into a double-digit cushion.

The court was told young boys would be given free sports kit at Bennell's house and allowed to eat takeaway food. The court heard Bennell would "play fight" with the boys and put on horror films for them to "soften them up".
Omoruyi credited the preparation of the team and game planning by the coaches for their near-upset, but noted that it was hard to stay in the game when four players fouled out.
"He's as good a player as there is in the league", said Rutgers head coach Steve Pikiell. "You can't just hone in on one of them, you have to play well against all of them". The Knights are scoring just 59 points on the road and giving up 85.5 per game. Rutgers doubled up MSU in scoring to start the half, tying the Spartans at the mid-way point in the half, thanks to a couple big Geo Baker and Corey Sanders buckets. That's what you're going to see every night, and I don't think we responded well to it at all.
For the second time this season, Rutgers will face one of the top college basketball teams in the country. The Spartans have depth, but it can be tough managing that rotation, something Izzo has done well with a team that has unmatched chemistry.
Maryland had more second-chance points with 13, compared to Michigan State's 12. "Cassius made a great pass and that's a shot I shoot so many times so I felt like I was going to hit that shot". In 29 minutes, Fraser added 17 points, 8 rebounds and 1 steal with 4 turnovers. "As he shows me those things, it makes me want to push a few more buttons". Last year's team put up 10 goals on the Spartans in two games, and a similar offensive outburst seems possible for Wisconsin if Frederic and the rest of the team are getting back into their rhythm. The Wolverines (14-4, 3-2 Big Ten) are plenty motivated after their 1-point home loss to Purdue on Tuesday. Tip-off is set for noon, with television coverage on FOX.
