Spartans prepare to take on Badgers from here in Chicago!

Chicago, IL

Big Ten Tournament

Â
The Spartans are preparing for a match with the team that has arguable upended UM as the Spartans biggest Big Ten rival and that is of course the Badgers of Wisconsin.

Â
Healthy and ready (which the Spartans are) has nothing to do with this. The Spartans were depleted when they took them on just a week ago in Madison and what a battle it was. Make no mistake however of what this game means.

Â
To say that Izzo and Ryan dislike one another is about as big of an understatement that I have a “slight” weight issue. These two teams from the water boy on down have a dislike that runs deep and long. The Spartans remembering the “dunk” and the Badgers simply not liking that for a long time Izzo has owned them.

Â
Look for the Spartans to change nothing. They beat them once, and came within four seconds of doing it last time with a sick team. Drew Naymick defense will be called upon to be huge in this game and if the Spartans can get any contribution from a healthy Morgan (he is healthy so count on it) then this should be yet another classic battle with these two programs.
