The Northwestern Wildcats (12-2, 1,0) have gotten the country's attention with their impressive play during the non-conference portion of their schedule and will now look to keep that momentum going as we head into conference play. The Wildcats will be playing their second consecutive road game as they travel to East Lansing to take on the Michigan State Spartans (9-5, 1,0) at the Breslin Center, a place they haven't won at since 2009.
Both teams have had to deal with multiple injuries thus far and the Wildcats will be without sophomore big man Dererk Pardon for an eighth consecutive game. The Spartans have had a series of front court injuries as well and their star player, freshman Miles Bridges, is doubtful heading into this game.
Chris Collins will be searching for his first win against Michigan State during his tenure at Northwestern, and this is perhaps the best chance Northwestern has had to upset the Spartans in many years. Be sure you know how to watch the game and then join us here for discussion during the game.
