State lost out on prize recruit Jabari Parker earlier this year and that hurt Izzo bad. He put a ton of time and effort into that kid. That is not motivation alone for this game but he knows this is a statement game for MSU against such a storied program like Duke. I feel Payne and Nix can neutralize the bigs Plumlee and Kelly. Sulamon and Curry pose a problem but Dawson and Appling( even though banged up) can play decent enough defense on them. I also just read that Duke ranks in the mid 200s on rebounding both offensive and defensive wise. Interesting game but I'm rolling with state. One more thing. This regional will be played in Indy. A nice easy 4 hour drive from East Lansing. Another home court advantage just like Auburn Hills.

Yeah they have a bad track record vs the Dukies that I have immense respect for. But this season on a neutral court with the matchups I think State can win SU. The one weakness about their d is that they leave the three open too much bc they care about packing in the middle so much to grab boards. A ton of the nation mostly outside the mid west has been down on the Big Ten this year. Saying that they're overrated. But now with this tourney, they are proving the nay-sayers wrong. It'll be a fun week coming up in the tourney. I feel Michigan wins too vs Kansas. But that can be for another thread

you know pete i'm glad you said it people just don't like the big 10 from how they do in bowls to adding MD and Rutgers etc. Barkley said the big 10 isn't the best league thsi yr what a dummy than who is the best league. Now do i think the big 10 will be the best league next year? No i believe it will be the ACC in terms of Hoops. they'll have

1. Duke

2. UNC

3. Syracuse

4. PItt

5. Notre Dame

6. Miami

7. Maryland

8. Nc State

9. virginia

My point is i think the acc could get 9-10 teams in the tourney next yr. the big 10 is a great league and people need 2 quit hating

no ktrain thats for 2014 and believe me once this lawsuit gets settled with the ACC and MD more dominos will fall in realignment. From what i've been told once MD's exit fee with the acc is settled the big 10 will make offers at North Carolina where Delany is an alum and Georgia Tech. Virginia has also been considered Boston College as well And then we will have a 16 team big 10

no problem ktrain another rumor i've heard is the big 10 adds 3 of the 4 i mentioned and kicks penn state out of the big 10

also FSU who i've rumored all along could be added as an AAU member soon which could put FSU in the big 10 lot of dominos yet to fall ktrain hopefully this realignment crap ends soon key word is hopefully

Matchups will be the key...Plumlee/Nix, Kelly/Payne or vice versa. Harris/Curry plus sulamon and appling...this is going to be a great game either way. and to the victor........a date with Louisville YIPPPEEEEEEE

[875] MICHIGAN STATE +2-110

220 / 200

i am really looking forward to this game...if you can't take the heat get outta the kitchen.  All the preseason tough games Izzo takes on are preparation for games like this in the tourney.
