Going into Sunday’s game for Duke vs. Michigan State. Duke came in with a -2 spread over Michigan State in points. Duke comes in with a wide spread of talent most notably in predicted first overall pick for the upcoming NBA Draft Zion Williamson. Zion averaged 22.6 points 8.9 rebounds, and 2 assists on 68 percent from the field 33 percent from three and 64 percent from the free throw line, this was massively impressive and expected from the freshman forward out of Duke. Coming in for Michigan State their leading scorer was Junior Cassius Winston who’s averaging 18.9 points, 7.6 assists and 3 rebounds shooting 46 percent from the field, 40 percent from three and 80 percent from the free throw line.
The game itself was amazing to watch, lots of lead changes, breakaway dunks, flashy passes, and good defense played all around by both teams. Michigan State came away with 11 total steals throughout the game while only committing seven turnovers themselves. One of the biggest takeaways of the game would have been Dukes inability to get the fouls needed down the line. When it came down to the final two minutes of the game, Duke still had three fouls to give before Michigan State would be sent to the foul line. This, in the end, made it very unlikely for Duke to win.
Michigan State goes to Minneapolis where they will face a rather hot Texas Tech team. Texas Tech has beaten the likes of Michigan and Gonzaga in which they were underdogs in both games. Michigan State is the favorite with a spread of three points. The game will be on April 6 at 8:49 pm, and it can be watched live on CBS.
