Immediately after it was revealed Michigan State was in the same region as Duke, college basketball analysts had a problem with it.

As a casual fan filling out your NCAA Tournament bracket because all of your co-workers are participating in the office pool contest or someone who truly believes they can win their bracket challenge and have bragging rights over their friends, predicting how far the Spartans will go in the tournament could end be the difference before first and second place.

The Michigan State Spartans beat the Michigan Wolverines 65-60 to capture the Big Ten Conference Tournament championship at the United Center on Sunday afternoon. Watson scored 23 points and made five 3-pointers.

3-point shooting has been a key statistic for MI basketball all season and against the Hawkeyes, UM knocked down 10 treys, with Ignas Brazdeikis, Eli Brooks, Jordan Poole and Zavier Simpson all hitting two each. When he exited the game, Simpson had 11 points, 11 assists, four rebounds and two steals. Jon Teske had 10 points and 10 rebounds. But McQuaid answered with one of his own to start the game-ending run and Xavier Tillman made a tying layup for Michigan State. Poole then appeared to get bumped by Winston - Michigan State had a foul to give - as he launched a long 3 off the dribble, but there was no call. Isaiah Livers got hot in late in the first half as MI built a 40-27.
