Game Prediction 03/06/08

Penn State has two ways to claim the seventh seed in the Big Ten tournament. One, would to beat Indiana on Sunday and that would give them a seventh place finish in the B10 all by their lonesome. The other would be to wind up in a four way tie with Illinois, Michigan, and Iowa (PSU would win the overall tiebreaker among the four teams).

Michigan State can help clear up that situation a little by heading into Champaign tonight and winning. You would think that would be easy, but the power rankings continue to say that Illinois is a much better team than their record would indicate and they only install the Spartans as a one point favorite.

Game Prediction:

  • Michigan State 63 Illinois 62
