Michigan vs Michigan State Basketball Game Awesome

If you missed the Michigan State Spartans basketball team playing at Ann Arbor last night, you missed an awesome college basketball game. Michigan vs Michigan State is always interesting due to the in-state rivalry, but last night the intensity was insane. Spartan Kalin Lucas made the go ahead basket with 3.5 seconds left, giving No. 5 Michigan State a 57-56 win over Michigan.

The Michigan Wolverines used their home court advantage to keep the game close and were even in the lead for most of the game. I watched most of it from my sofa (thank you ESPN). The Wolverines fans were awesome. The first six rows or so in the lower deck were ALL decked out in yellow shirts – the visual impact was really cool and the fans were totally into it. It was college basketball at its best.

With the win, Michigan State Spartans basketball team improved to 8-0 in conference play for the first time in school history. If they weren’t in the Big 10 with my beloved Golden Gophers, I could be a real fan (and not just a close Michigan State fan).
