Michigan (22-7, 11-5) is coming off a 74-62 victory over Ohio State on Sunday, although the Wolverines can't win a regular season conference title since they are three games behind league-leading Michigan State with two games to play.

It's hard to pinpoint exactly who the go-to option is for the Spartans as 11 different players have led the team in scoring through 26 games and eight Michigan State players are now averaging six points or more.

Joshua Langford added 16 points, Cassius Winston 12, Kenny Goins scored nine points, and Nick Ward had eight points and seven rebounds in just 15 minutes.

Junior Leron Black scored 20 points to lead IL (13-16, 3-13). Ohio State (23-7, 14-3) will have a chance to share the title with the Spartans if they win at IN on Friday and MSU loses to the Badgers.

If the Nittany Lions are able to beat both conference opponents and head into the Big Ten tournament with the two more wins, they should feel somewhat comfortable about making the Big Dance with a reasonable showing in NY.

It was also Michigan State's 11th straight victory as they have not lost a game since January 13, where the Spartans lost to their hated-rival, the Michigan Wolverines 82-72.

Bridges finished with 19 points, five rebounds and three assists in what could be his last home game. Mike Watkins is another threat inside, who averages 12.5 points and a team-high 9.2 rebounds. They can also improve their seeding for March Madness with another quality road win. However, good teams know how to put their opponents away and the Spartans did that in the second half, outscoring IL 43-26 en route to a victory on senior night.

Now, the Spartans will attempt to win the whole thing. We will break it down a little more in a second, but first, here's a quick look at how to watch the game, on TV and if you need to stream. The run ultimately did IL, as they never came within 11 points of the Spartans from that point on.

However, the Illini stayed close with hot shooting from deep as well. Rhode Island did not trail in the second half and led 81-78 with three seconds left. MSU got five of its points in the early run at the free-throw line. After missing all of last year with a knee injury, Carter has played 20 games this year and has been a solid frontcourt reserve off the bench.

The second half didn't start off almost as well as the first half.

The Spartans wrap up the regular season Sunday at Wisconsin.

Penn State, a team that has played itself into at least being in the conversation for an NCAA Tournament berth because of a strong second half, has opportunity knocking with a chance to earn what would assuredly be a resume-boosting win.
