What you need to know about the state of Michigan

Last week, Michigan State narrowly escaped with a 73-71 win over the Villanova Wildcats. The Spartans had double-digit scores from four players: guards Tyson Walker (22) and AJ Hoggard (13) and forwards Joey Hauser (13) and Hall (12). Michigan State totaled 51.9% of their tries from the field, including an impressive 52% of their 3-pointers, with three each from Walker and Hauser.

Hall isn’t the only player dealing with a foot injury, as second guard Jaden Akins could also carry one into tonight’s game. Akins scored nine points against Villanova from the bench and if he is unavailable, the Spartans’ lack of depth could become a problem. Offensively, the Spartans were among the best in the country when it came to creating chances, averaging 17.3 assists per game. Hoggard hands out 8.3 per game to lead the team.

What you need to know about Alabama

Bama won easily at home last Friday with a 104-62 win over the Jacksonville State Gamecocks. Miller put on a show with a 7-for-9 show from beyond the arc and a season-high 28 points remaining with eight boards. Nimari Burnett and Mark Sears also each scored 18 points in the win. The Tide’s 104 points were the most in a single game since the 95 they scored against Liberty on November 11.

Alabama is the nation’s top rebounding team, averaging 56 per contest this season. Noah Clowney was the Tide’s top player on the glass, pulling down 10.5 per game. Miller is right behind him at 9.8 per outing, while Charles Bediako is snapping up the most offensive boards at four per appearance. The Spartans are the nation’s 110th team with defensive rebounds (27.5), but that could take a toll on some of the injuries they’re nursing.
