BRESLIN CENTER — Through this entire non-conference season, Michigan State hasn’t played a high-major foe at home, as they’ll do nine times over the next couple of months in Big Ten play.
Road wins are what usually determine the success of a season, but owning one’s home court is essential to a league title run.
We really don’t know MSU’s personality at home this year, because the Spartans haven’t played anyone close to equal talent here.
We may get a feel for it today. And we’ll also see how close MSU is to being ready for the rigors of Big Ten play, which begins New Year’s Eve at Minnesota.
This is an athletic Texas team, per usual. A little young, but capable.
I’ll have more at halftime.
