I didn't get to watch the full game. But I came away with a few observations. You aren't going to beat good teams when you shoot that poorly from the field. Hopefully they got that poor shooting game out of their system.
Tom Izzo is one heck of a coach. He devised a game plan that beat OSU. Kudos to him. OSU travels to MSU in a few weeks so lets see if Thad and OSU have a response.
I think where Big 10 refs, and maybe all college refs need to improve is in cleaning up low post play. They call light contact in the frontcourt, yet allow the bigs to just pound on each other. Then they wonder why the bigs are ready to come to blows so frequently.
