East Lansing, Mich. The No. 8-ranked Michigan State men's basketball team returns home to the Breslin Center for a pair of games this weekend, beginning with a matchup against Detroit Mercy on Friday, Dec. 4. Tipoff is slated for 5 p.m.
The game will air live on BTN, with Jeff Levering and Brian Butch calling all of the action. The TCF Bank Spartan Media Network radio call can be heard on one of 38 affiliates and on the web at MSUSpartans.com, with Will Tieman handling the play-by-play and Matt Steigenga serving as the color analyst. The game can also be heard on Sirius 138, XM 196 and Internet 958.ansing (Big Ten Network).
Oakland men's basketball lost the first game by 52 points, then the second by 27, then the third by 14. So, things were trending in the right direction — at least as much as they could for an 0-3 team entering Sunday night's game at Michigan.
And Oakland, a 32-point dog, almost pulled off the unbelievable shocker, using a zone defense, unheard of in Greg Kampe's tenure, to fluster the Wolverines, from start to finish, at least in regulation.
