EAST LANSING, Mich—While the Michigan State men’s basketball team prepares for a two-game slate this week, it has also rescheduled a postponed game.

Initially, the Spartans were set to play against Michigan at the Crisler Center on Jan. 8. COVID-19 complications arose within the Wolverines’ program leading to the postponement of the game. That game has now been rescheduled for March 1 at 8:30 p.m.

This rescheduling sets the Spartans up to play four games in nine days. MSU is also set to thost No. 4 Purdue on Feb. 26 and Maryland to wrap up the regular season on March 6; it will travel to Columbus to take on No. 16 Ohio State on March 3.

The Spartans are currently sitting at 16-4 with a 7-2 record in the Big Ten; Michigan State is coming off a resounding 83-67 home win over Michigan on Saturday afternoon. With that win, the Spartans have now won two out of their last three games against the Wolverines and six out of the last eight. 

Michigan, meanwhile, fell to 10-8 on the season and 4-4 in the Big Ten with Saturday’s defeat.
