Michigan State looks to rebound from Sunday's 80-64 loss to Ohio State as they host Rutgers tonight at the Breslin Center.

Tom Izzo wants him to change, hoping he'll choose to be more aggressive with the ball. "I was not very happy with how we played". Classic trap, but the Spartans didn't handle it well.

"We just couldn't get anything going", Bridges said. "You can't just hone in on one of them, you have to play well against all of them". Rutgers battled back and pulled to within 26-23 with 1:55 left in the first half.

The Spartans opened the game on a 9-0 scoring run, but soon after struggled to find offense, with both teams trading several minute scoring droughts.

"They play hard", Izzo said. Freshman forward Jaren Jackson Jr. followed closely behind with 16 points. Sanders finished with 22 points, 18 of which came in the second half and overtime. Following a 17-point outing in Columbus, Josh Langford, third on the team in scoring (13.9), also put up a goose-egg in the points column at the half.

Michigan State was 0-10 against Maryland in a series that began in 2005.

Rutgers: The Scarlet Knights, coming off a win over Wisconsin, are showing they can compete in Pikiell's second season.

Rutgers trailed by seven points with about six minutes in to go in regulation. Rutgers doubled up MSU in scoring to start the half, tying the Spartans at the mid-way point in the half, thanks to a couple big Geo Baker and Corey Sanders buckets. Sanders missed a long jumper with 16 seconds left.

"He has to be more selfish", Izzo said.

Sophomore guard Miles Bridges connected on one of two free throws to tie the game at 59 with eight seconds remaining.

"From Day 1, I loved the people at the university", he said. "Cassius made a great pass and that's a shot I shoot so many times so I felt like I was going to hit that shot". Nick Ward had a double-double for the Spartans with 17 points and 10 boards.

With the win MSU improves to 16-2 overall, best for first place in the conference along with Purdue who shares the same overall record. MSU will host their in-state rival MI, which sits at 14-4 on the year.
