The Big Ten championship between No. 7 Ohio State and No. 8 Michigan State gets under way at 3:30 p.m. EST on CBS.
The two teams meet less than a week after Ohio State (27-6) stunned Michigan State (26-7) with a last -econd William Buford shot to give the Buckeyes a 72-70 victory. The loss denied the Spartans a chance to win the Big Ten regular season title outright and could serve as some extra motivation on Sunday.
It's just another opportunity for us. We had two chances to win the Big Ten outright, we didn't do it, Michigan State's Draymond Green said. You can't really make up for it, but it's an opportunity to feel better about it if we get this conference tournament championship. It's just another way to leave that footprint, leave your legacy.
Michigan State will need a strong performance from its star Green, especially against Ohio State's Jared Sullinger. Green, the Big Ten's Player of the Year, had 19 points in Michigan State's loss to Ohio State last week, while Sullinger had 14 points.
Both teams are locks to make the NCAA Tournament, but are still competing for seeding purposes. ESPN's Joe Lunardi's most recent Bracketology has Michigan State as a No. 1 seed and Ohio State as a No. 2 seed, though that could change depending on who wins the Big Ten title.
