The last time Michigan beat a top-10 MSU team was Jan 25, 1979, home win over No. 4 (and eventual national champ) Spartans.—

On the backcourt violation, Izzo was arguing Appling didn't yet have control. He was right. Shouldn't have been a violation.—

Trey Burke is a stud. Top 10 point guard in the country. Smooth, fearless, poised. Not a great athlete, but uses angles & knows how to play.—

Two guys I'm consistently impressed with every time I watch them: Trey Burke and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist.—

HALFTIME: Trey Burke has nine points to lead No. 19 Michigan to a 36-29 lead over No. 9 Michigan State at the end of the first half. The Wolverines led by as many as 10 points in the first half and never trailed. Michigan got points from seven different players. Seven Michigan State players scored in the first half. Draymond Green is putting together a nice game so far for the Spartans. The senior has five points and seven rebounds.
Michigan State averages 22.9 FT attempts PG, 2nd in Big Ten. At the half against Michigan, they've yet to get to the line.—

I know I'm a lot crazy and maybe a little biased, but I could see these 2 teams meeting in late March.—
