The Wildcats will travel to East Lansing to take on the No. 14 Spartans Wednesday evening. This marks the second time these teams will face off this season — in December, MSU came out on top 77-72. This time around, the ‘Cats look to break the Spartans’ seven-home-game winning streak.
Eyes will be on freshman point guard Boo Buie, who was the leading scorer in the first NU-MSU matchup. The freshman came off the bench to score 26 points, more than any other rookie in the Big Ten has come off the bench to score this season. Sophomore Miller Kopp is also expected to contribute — he is the first underclassman in program history to score at least 15 points in five straight games.
