The next two basketball games for Michigan State are against Michigan. The women's teams play on Wednesday night at the Breslin Center, while the men's teams play on Saturday afternoon in Ann Arbor. These are the only two games scheduled between the teams this season.

Both MSU teams posted double-digit blowouts on Sunday afternoon. Suzy Merchant's team whipped Wisconsin on the road by 23 points, while Tom Izzo's team crushed Rutgers at home by 34 points. The victories completed a four-game sweep by the Spartans last week, as both teams also won their mid-week games.

Here's a look at how each team stacks-up heading into the Rivalry games against the Wolverines:

The Men are ranked #10, with a 19-4 record. They are in Sixth-Place in the B1G, with a 6-4 record, two-and-a-half games behind First. They beat Northwestern last week in Evanston, 76-45. They defeated Rutgers Sunday night at home, 96-62.
The Women are ranked #17, with a 16-4 record. They are in Third-Place in the B1G, with a 7-2 record, one-game behind First. They beat Purdue last week at home, 68-56. They defeated Wisconsin Sunday in Madison, 77-54.

The final score of the women's game against Purdue looks like a modest victory with the 12-point final scoring margin. However, the Spartans led by 26 points, 66-40, with just under five minutes left. A Boilermaker flurry against the MSU reserves closed the gap at the end.

Both teams appear to be in great shape heading into the match-ups against Michigan. Tum Tum Nairn is still out due to injury, but may return by Saturday. The Wolverines have also had a starter sidelined, Caris Lavert, and he may also return by this weekend. There are no major injuries operative on either of the women's teams at this time.

The Spartan Men are 20-9 against UM since the year 2000. The Spartan Women are 66-18 against UM in the all-time series.


 ****** The purpose of this web site is to expose the mainstream media bias that consistently portrays Michigan in a favorable light under any and all circumstances. We present current facts and review historical records to show that UM is not all they are cracked up to be. This process involves information that is negative by nature, offered as a counter-balance to the biased picture we all see on a regular basis in the mainstream media. These negative facts may involve Wolverine teams, players, coaches, administrators, and/or fans. We are here to prove that Michigan is NOT AS DIFFERENT as they want us all to believe.
