MSU Basketball vs. Rutgers: Stream, broadcast info, prediction for Sunday

Michigan State basketball returns home for a key conference matchup against Rutgers on Sunday afternoon.

The Spartans have dropped back-to-back road games in the past week, including a narrow defeat at top 10 Illinois earlier this week. Michigan State is 9-7 overall and 1-4 in conference play.

Rutgers enters this matchup after picking up its first conference win of the year against Indiana earlier this week. The Scarlet Knights are 9-6 overall and 1-3 in Big Ten play.

Can Michigan State bounce back Thursday’s narrow loss at Illinois with a victory over Rutgers? Check out my prediction and all of the key game details for this matchup between the Spartans and Scarlet Knights below:

Prediction: MSU 74, Rutgers 63

If things aren’t as bad as some think, then Michigan State should roll in Sunday’s matchup against Rutgers. The Spartans are the better team and in a home environment, this should be a game Michigan State can control for most of the way. If they don’t and drop this one, then we have much bigger problems to worry about for Michigan State.
