The Michigan State Spartans and the Minnesota Golden Gophers will both be gunning for a victory on Friday when they meet at Verizon Center.

ABOUT MICHIGAN STATE (19-13): Miles Bridges, who was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year earlier in the week, scored 15 points and pulled down nine rebounds against Penn State to finish in double figures for the 15th consecutive game. Fellow freshman Nick Ward also had 15 points and nine rebounds to fall short of his second straight double-double while Josh Langford added 13 points against the Nittany Lions. “We’re not worried about the (NCAA) Tournament we’re just worried about winning this tournament right now,” Bridges told reporters.”We’re just trying to win games and they beat us before so we wanted bring to them early.”

ABOUT MINNESOTA (23-8): Junior point guard Nate Mason became the first Golden Gopher to be named to the All-Big Ten First Team since 2005 after leading the club with 15.5 points and 5.1 assists during the regular season. Junior center Reggie Lynch set a program record for blocked shots in a season with 106, breaking the old mark set by Randy Breuer (87) in 1982-83. “It’s cool to kind of go from where we were to now,” Pitino told reporters. “It’s a little better than the alternative that was last year when everyone wanted me fired so we have to ride that momentum the best we can.”

Oddsmakers currently have the Golden Gophers listed as PK-point favorites versus the Spartans, while the game’s total is sitting at 137.

Fourth-seeded Minnesota looks to build on its best regular season since 1996-97 when it faces No. 5 seed Michigan State in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten tournament Friday. The Golden Gophers won eight of their last nine games to finish with 11 conference victories for the first time in 18 years and hope to parlay their regular-season success into their first Big Ten Tournament title.

Richard Pitino was named the Big Ten Coach of the Year after engineering the greatest turnaround in Minnesota history as the Gophers improved their win total by 15 games and search for their first semifinal appearance in the conference tournament since 2010. The Spartans ended a two-game slide with an emphatic 78-51 victory against 13th-seeded Penn State in Thursday’s second round. The Spartans, who are fighting for their NCAA Tournament lives, can cement their 20th straight appearance in the Big Dance by beating Minnesota for the third time in a row after sweeping the season series. Michigan State advanced to the Big Ten Tournament semifinals in each of the last six years while winning it three times during that span, and hopes to live up to its reputation of peaking in March with another deep run.

Minnesota was a 66-49 loser in its last match on the road against Badgers. They failed to cover the +8-point spread as underdogs.

Last time out for Michigan State, they were a 78-51 winner as they battled Nittany Lions at home. They covered in the match as a -6-point favorite.
