The Michigan State Women's Basketball team defeated Michigan on Sunday in Ann Arbor, 79-72. The game broke up a two-way tie atop the B1G standings, leaving MSU alone in First Place with a 3-0 record.

The win makes the Spartans 22-2 over the past 24 games against UM. But it didn't come easily, as what looked like it may be a cakewalk nine months ago turned into a white-knuckle thriller. The game was tied at 65-all in the final minutes, before MSU pulled away to the finish line.

Michigan State now holds a 47-game lead in the all-time series against Michigan, with 63 wins to only 16 losses. This is the only meeting scheduled between the teams during the regular season.

  1. Worth noting:
    MSU Football was undefeated in B1G Ten play.
    MSU Basketball is currently undefeated in B1G Ten play.
    MSU Women's Basketball is currently undefeated in B1G Ten play.

    Spartans Will!

  2. That's a cool data-point! While I don't expect either basketball team to run the table, it will be interesting to see how long the streak(s) will continue. And it certainly distinguishes MSU from all other conference schools, as none of the others can claim the same.

  3. That's alright. Football's all that matters...Oh wait we won that too... :-)
