Michigan State is 1-5 Under last 6 vs. Big East. These are two very good defensive teams, especially Michigan State, who allows just 58.7ppg. Even though Louisville wants to run, they average just 66.5 points per game and their last four games have gone UNDER. They scored just 59 points in their win over New Mexico and 50 points in the Big East title game against Cincinnati, a team that is very physical, just like Michigan State. The Spartans want to play halfcourt and make this an ugly game.
