ESPN’s Prediction For Today’s Michigan-Michigan State Game

On today's episode of Current Sports with Al Martin, we talk all things Michigan State / Michigan men's basketball, including a full breakdown of the game and takeaways. The Spartans marched into Ann Arbor to upset their seventh-ranked rival, 77-70. "They stepped up. Even without (Langford and Ward), they're still a very, very good team, talented team". Cassius Winston's Big Ten Player of the Year campaign and the updated Big Ten Title race is also included in the dialogue. He didn't disappoint, finishing with 27 points. UM can't afford more than a loss if it wants to win the regular season title, so unless it can win back-to-back road games at Maryland and Michigan State, it better beat the Spartans.

The Spartans passed this road test with flying colors but which player received the highest grade from Sunday's epic win?

Zavier Simpson scored 19 points to pace the Wolverines, who saw their 22-game home winning steak come to an end. He guarded Charles Matthews and did a rock-solid job in 16 minutes and he added two assists and two rebounds. MI got within four in the final minute but came no closer.

The only knock I had on Henry was his foul trouble as well as passing up a couple of open looks. "Second half was much better defense by us, but ... we're going to have to play better than that".

The next Porsche Macan will be fully electric
When it was first launched in 2014, Porsche estimated annual production for the Macan of around 40,000 units. The Audi e-tron, for example, uses the VW Group's Major League Baseball platform instead.

Still, he took a step in the right direction on Sunday. Some fans near the court said they'd arrived around midnight and waited about seven hours, receiving bracelets that helped them get such a coveted spot.

In 40 minutes, Michigan State guard Cassius Winston posted 27 points on 7-of-13 shooting and eight assists to key the Spartans offense.

If the Spartans continue to win, a No. 1 seed in the NCAA Tournament is not out of the question.
