My Prediction

The game is close throughout the 1st half as neither team gives an edge. The biggest lead either team gets is 6 and it’s by the Spartans. The Wolverines then cut the lead back down to 3 by hitting a 3 pointer. The Spartans then hit a 10 foot jump shot to take a 5 point lead into halftime. In the 2nd half the Wolverines take a 3 point lead by going on a 10-2 run. The Spartans then hit a 3 pointer to tie the game. The game stays within 3 points until the 3 minutes left when the Spartans hit back to back 3 pointers to take a 6 point lead. The Wolverines hit a shot to cut the lead to 4 with 1 minute left. The Spartans then put the game away by hitting another 3 pointer to take a 7 point lead. The Wolverines don’t give up and hit a 3 pointer with 5 seconds left but it’s not enough as the Spartans hold on to win.

Final Score

Michigan State: 72
Michigan: 68
