The No. 10 Michigan State Spartans will look to close out December with an undefeated month when they host the High Point Panthers on Wednesday, December 29th in another welcoming edition of weekday afternoon college hoops.
Michigan State won five games in a row heading into Wednesday’s matchup, which is the final game before the Spartans start playing Big Ten opponents the rest of the year. Michigan State has been a balanced team this season and is inside the top 25 in KenPom’s adjusted offensive and defensive efficiency, and they have two forgivable losses to the Kansas Jayhawks and Baylor Bears.
High Point will look to get back to above .500 with a 6-6 record going into Wednesday afternoon. The Panthers have a rough two-game stretch with a road matchup against the Kentucky Wildcats on Friday afternoon following the game against Michigan State. High Point is outside the top 200 in adjusted offensive and defensive efficiency according to KenPom, and John-Michael Wright is averaging more than 20 points per game for the second straight season.
