Big Ten Geeks: Michigan State outshoots Wisconsin

Michigan State rode some hot jump-shooting to an eight-point win over Wisconsin in Saturday’s second semifinal. Right out of the gate, the Spartans were deadly accurate with their perimeter shooting, and there was little the Badgers could do to slow them. Michigan State poured in 43 points in a 27 possession first half, and, when combined with some stout interior defense spearheaded by Adreian Payne and Branden Dawson, it gave the Spartans a 17-point halftime advantage. To Wisconsin’s credit, the team came out with better energy and execution in the second half, but Michigan State just kept hitting shots anyway.

Big Ten Geeks: Wisconsin pummels Minnesota

There are some that read way too much into the first occurrence of something. Like the hubbub made over the choice of an opening day pitcher, or the superstition that you can tell how a season will go by the first play. We Geeks pride ourselves in believing no such thing. We value large sample sizes over the random outcome of a single event. On this night, perhaps Wisconsin’s first bucket of the game was a harbinger of things to come.
