The Fighting Illini are coming off one of their more convincing wins of the season and look to build upon their 7 game winning streak as they travel to East Lansing to take on the Spartans on Tuesday night. Ayo Dosunmu is coming off another outstanding performance as for the 2nd time in 2 weeks Dosunmu registered a triple double last time out. Kofi Cockburn has continued his steady play and Trent Frazier seems to have found his game as of late as well.
Michigan State is in a down year for their standards as they come into the contest with an 11-9 record. COVID-19 has really adversely affected the team this season. Don’t let the Spartans record fool you though they are still a very capable team led by guard Aaron Henry. Henry leads the Spartans in pts, assts, steals, and blocks per game. He averages 15 pts and 3.5 assts. Not the greatest shooter from beyond the 3 Henry relies on drives and a mid-range game to get his points. Should be a good defensive matchup for both Ayo Dosunmu and Trent Frazier. Only one other Spartan averages double figures in scoring and that is Joey Hauser at 10.2 ppg. Hauser also leads the Spartans with 6.3 boards per game as well.
Tip off for the Illini and Michigan State is scheduled for 6p CT Tuesday evening on FS1
