Bucknell Baffles Spartans at Home

After a long holiday layoff, the Spartan wrestlers returned to action Sunday against the Bisons of Bucknell. Unfortunately for the Spartans, the Bisons seemed to be firing on all cylinders.

The final score, 25-12 Bucknell, would seem to say that the Spartans were not competitive in the meet. That is just not true; they just could not quite replicate the same kind of scoring as the Bisons. Bucknell recorded a pin, technical fall and two major decisions against the Spartans. Read More…

2015 is now upon us, and if you are a college hockey fan then you are salivating at the mouth because the bulk of the Big Ten season starts in earnest in a few short weeks.

Spartans Bounce Back Against The Citadel

Michigan State returned to form Monday night with an 82-56 beatdown of The Citadel.

The final score of the game was 87-61 MSU, a victory that came behind some prolific marksmanship from beyond the arc. A three-point percentage of 58.8 with 10 of 17 three-point shots that MSU attempted finding their mark made it a tough night for the Grizzlies. Read More…
