MICHIGAN ST: Last season, the Spartans made a run to the Sweet 16, and expectations are even higher in 2013-14. The team brings back one of the most potent backcourts in the country in senior PG Keith Appling (13.4 PPG, 3.4 RPG, 3.3 APG) and sophomore SG Gary Harris (12.9 PPG, 41% 3-pt FG). Harris gave serious consideration to the NBA, but decided to come back for his sophomore campaign. Appling and Harris complement each other perfectly. Appling does a terrific job of getting in the paint and driving, while Harris is a knockdown shooter. Senior PF Adreian Payne (10.5 PPG, 7.6 RPG, 1.3 BPG) is one of the most dominant big men in all of the country, and has continued to develop an outside jumper. He is also a dominating presence on defense. Junior F/G Branden Dawson (8.9 PPG, 5.9 RPG, 1.6 SPG) is the key to the Spartans making a championship run. He is an explosive athlete, but has too many games where he disappears. If he is able to play up to his potential, Michigan State will be a nightmare. With Tom Izzo leading the Spartans, Michigan State is one of the top contenders in the country, and in two weeks, the they'll face Kentucky in Chicago in a game that will show how good Michigan State is as a potential No. 1 versus No. 2 matchup.
GEORGETOWN: Four of last season's starters are back, but the most important one is gone as Otto Porter Jr. was selected No. 3 overall in this year's NBA Draft. Still, the returning crew should allow the Hoyas to be dangerous after a season in which they were quite good before being upset in the NCAA Tournament's Round of 64 from the big dunkers at Florida Gulf Coast. In addition to the loss of Porter, third leading scorer PF Greg Whittington (12.1 PPG, 7.0 RPG) could miss the entire season with a knee injury he suffered in June. The rest of the starting lineup should be the same, with PG Markel Starks (12.8 PPG, 3.0 APG, 42% 3-pt FG) once again leading the backcourt. He's a great shooter, making 41.7% of his 3-pointers a year ago. Last year's starters on the perimeter, SG D'Vauntes Smith-Rivera (8.9 PPG) and F/G Jabril Trawick (5.8 PPG) may benefit in production with Porter gone and more touches available. SF Mikael Hopkins (5.9 PPG, 2.9 RPG) will likely remain in the starting five, but he must improve as a rebounder to keep that spot, using all of his 6-foot-9 frame. He'll be challenged by the team's top recruit, SF Reggie Cameron, who can play insider or outside, but the main force down low this season could be transfer 6-foot-10 C Joshua Smith, who is immensely talented in the low post, but was plagued by foul trouble and weight issues in his time at UCLA.

*Michigan St.-Georgetown Preview* =================================


Michigan State (19-2) at Georgetown (11-9), 3:00 p.m. EDT

Down two key players because of injuries, Michigan State is finding new players to step up.

As they head to Madison Square Garden on Saturday to face struggling Georgetown in a rare late-season matchup of non-conference foes, the No. 7 Spartans are hoping to get more production from unexpected places.

Escaping Big Ten play and facing a Hoyas team which has dropped five straight may serve Michigan State well, as the banged-up team has been in some close battles of late. Each of its last three games was decided by five points or less, and the Spartans (19-2) won two of them.

Star senior Adreian Payne hasn't played since Jan. 7 because of a foot injury, and starting forward Branden Dawson has missed the last two games with a broken hand. Neither player will suit up against the Hoyas, again leaving Michigan State without its top two rebounders. Payne and Dawson combine to average 26.4 points and 16.4 boards.

Sophomore Matt Costello helped atone for their absences in the latest game, setting career highs with 11 points and 12 rebounds in a 71-69 overtime victory at No. 15 Iowa on Tuesday.

Denzel Valentine and Travis Trice, who came into the game averaging a combined 14.1 points, totaled 21 and five 3-pointers. Little-used Russell Byrd, who didn't score in six of the 10 games he had played this season, hit a key 3-pointer late in overtime.

"We have guys that want to win," said senior Keith Appling, who had 16 points. "I feel like this win speaks volumes of the character of our team. We have a lot of guys that are able to dig down and compete. And at the end of the day I feel like that's what gave us the victory."

Contributions from Valentine and Trice could continue to make a big difference considering that in Michigan State's only two losses, the duo accounted for a total of just 11 points.

No matter who has been on the floor for Michigan State, the team has been tough away from home with a 10-0 record. Four of those victories came on a neutral floor, including 78-74 over then-No. 1 Kentucky on Nov. 12 in Chicago.

Georgetown (11-9) had a couple of nice neutral-court wins in November, beating previously ranked teams Kansas State and VCU in Puerto Rico, but hasn't won anywhere in the past three weeks. The Hoyas are looking to avoid their first six-game losing streak since dropping nine in a row to close the 2003-04 season.

"We're in a hole right now," coach John Thompson III said. "This group is going to stay together, we're going to look under every rock and we're going to try to figure it out, because we're going to get out of this hole. I don't have all the answers now, but collectively we're going to figure out how to get out of this hole."

During this five-game skid, Georgetown's opponents are making 40.0 percent of their 3-point attempts after their first 15 hit 27.5 percent. Another big difference during the losing streak has been getting to the foul line, with the Hoyas attempting 60 fewer foul shots than their opponents.

The Hoyas were outscored 22-8 at the free-throw line in a 65-60 loss to No. 5 Villanova on Monday.

One bright spot of late for Georgetown has been Markel Starks, averaging 23.0 points over the last three contests.
