The game plan was clear for Michigan State on Saturday afternoon when it took on Purdue - don't let the Boilermakers' shooters win the game. When you look at it that way, it's a privilege for (his team) and I told them that. The Spartans seemingly flipped a switch and began making everything hard for the Boilermakers, who went scoreless for over three minutes and missed nine of 10 shots from the field. It hasn't been the best though. Wesson was one of the biggest reasons for the OSU victory.
"I just took what he gave me", Bridges said of the Purdue defender who faded away from him ever so slightly in the closing seconds of a neck-and-neck Big Ten fistfight Saturday. Michigan State ripped off a 6-0 run to take its first lead of the game with 8:58 to play. The Buckeyes certainly deserve their first-place holding in the Big Ten.
The Ohio State women's rowing team finished fifth at the NCAA Championships to end the 2017 season and has been a strong program overall. The Boilermakers forced a couple of early Spartan turnovers and limited Michigan State's opportunities to get out in transition, especially in the first few minutes.
"I got a chance to meet with his wife, Gene and some of those people before the game and I know it wouldn't have mattered to them and I heard halftime was great", Izzo said.

The plan was to get the ball to Big Ten player of the year candidate. That and the belief the Buckeyes can win every game they play; Something they didn't have previous year.
Ohio State sank 29 of 55 (52.7) on field goals and 9 of 22 (40.9) on treys. Finding a way to slow down the trio was tough for any opponent but even more so for the Spartans and their unexpectedly depleted front court. And the Spartans added freshmen Xavier Tillman and Jaren Jackson Jr. Jackson is the shot blocker and three-point hitter while Ward is a rebounding machine.
The Hoosiers raced out to a 10-point win before Purdue battled back for the last-minute victory. Despite the 19-game winning streak, Purdue has been on the mat before this season. "You don't win something like this without playing as a unit".
Guard Carsen Edwards is leading the way for Purdue with an average of 17.0 points per night, while forward Vincent Edwards (no relation to Carsen) is right behind with 15.3 points and 7.8 rebounds per game. Also, not settling for the outside shots will be key. He plays bigger as he averages 7.8 boards per game and has 16 blocks for the season. Guys like Haarms, Eastern and Cline need to start stepping up, and the same could be said for Thompson as well. And Michigan State can.

Before the half ended, however, Purdue found its footing again. He's going to have to use that to his advantage. The Spartans bench is just as deep as any in the country. Nearly no one had them higher than 10th.
The former five-star prospect from La Lumiere High School listed Purdue in his final five but ultimately chose Michigan State.
Throughout the season Purdue has lived by the mantra, "Purdue won't beat Purdue". Ryan Cline is their wing man off the bench who has knocked down 32 three-pointers this season. Then there's back-up point guard Lourawls Nairn who averages 3.5 assists per game. "I think that's a staple with his teams". At the beginning of the season I was sold on the Spartans. These are still two of the most talented teams in the nation. They have a nice balance of upper and underclassmen. And maybe it's time for the rest of college basketball to start trusting them too.
Purdue continued to feed the ball to Haas down low and he broke a almost five-minute Boilermaker scoring drought with one of his most powerful moves of the night for a layup.
