LOOK: MSU Basketball projected to go unbeaten in month of February

It’s been an up-and-down season for Michigan State basketball this year, but analytics suggests the Spartans shouldn’t lose a game in February.

According to KenPom, Michigan State is projected to win all seven of its games in the month of February. Andrew Cumbow pulled the schedule breakdown from KenPom — which shows the upcoming slate for the Spartans:

When looking at the schedule, it’s understandable how the Spartans could go a perfect 7-0 in February. But logic also would suggest Michigan State will drop at least one game along the way — especially with three road games on the schedule: Minnesota, Penn State and Michigan.

Michigan State will enter February with a 13-8 overall record and 5-5 mark in Big Ten play. Should the Spartans actually run the table in February, they’d enter March with a much more impressive mark of 20-8 overall and 12-5 in conference play.

First up for the Spartans is a home tilt against Maryland on Saturday. Tipoff is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. ET and will be televised on FOX.
