About No. 3 Michigan State
Michigan State entered the season as one of the title favorites, and nothing has changed. The Spartans have elite top-end talent including likely top-15 NBA draft picks Jaren Jackson Jr. and Miles Bridges, and they have solid depth. Still, streaky shooting and turnover tendencies could be their undoing.
About No. 14 Bucknell
Bucknell won the Patriot League regular season by four games. You can rest assured the league is sending its best representative. The Bison have lost just once in their last 18 games.
