Reporting on the impact of the coronavirus on the sports world

Sunday’s matchup between Michigan State and Maryland on CBS serves as the Big Ten Bubble Battle Royale, featuring two teams that have seen spikes late in the season and resurrected once dire hopes for an NCAA tournament The Terrapins (14-10, 8-9 Big Ten) have won four times in a row, while the Spartans (13-9, 7-9) have won three times in a row, including two against the top 5 teams

Oddly enough, however, the game can only count as a quad-2 chance for the state of Michigan as it’s a home match against a team outside the top 30 of the NET Maryland sat at No. 31 in the NET on the weekend Michigan State is just No. 68 in the NET, but the game will count as a Quad-1 chance for the Terrapins as it is a street game against an opponent who is 75th or better ranked

Whichever way you split it, this is a critical game for both teams as they try to get the final week of the regular season going and improve their resumes ahead of an addicting, high-stakes Big Ten tournament

State of Michigan: The Spartans had serious problems with the foul, hitting only four 3-pointers, but managed to get No. 1 upset 4 Ohio State 71-67 on Thursday night anyway and hit the “last four in” the scheduled NCAA tournament bracket, according to Jerry Palm’s Friday edition of Bracketology. The Ohio State win followed a huge 81-72 win against No 5 Illinois on Tuesday, which put the Spartans right back in conversation with the NCAA tournament, Aaron Henry’s game was essential during the Spartan push, the 6-foot-6 junior averaged 217 points and 37 assists in shooting 532% over Michigan State’s winning streak in three games that goes back to last Saturday’s victory in Indiana

Maryland: All five Maryland starters hit double digits in a 68:59 win over Rutgers last Sunday, but Junior Guards Eric Ayala and Aaron Wiggins have been particularly solid lately, Wiggins averaging 183 points and 78 rebounds over the winning streak in four games while Ayala averaged 16 points per game on the same track and her offensive contributions have put some relief on second striker Donta Scott, who has fired fewer shots recently after serving as the offensive midpoint earlier in the season The unsung hero, however, is likely Senior Guard Darryl Morsell, who is being promoted by the school as a candidate for Big Ten Defensive Player of the Year

Maryland has been great defensively lately, keeping four of its last six opponents under 60. In a game of these stakes, that defense can be the deciding factor Prediction: Maryland 71, Michigan State 69
