Michigan State Vs. Nebraska-Omaha: Spartans Go For Sixth Straight Win

For more on the Spartans, check out The Only Colors

The Michigan State Spartans have won five straight games since starting the season with consecutive losses (against North Carolina and Duke), and they shouldn't have any problems extending that winning streak to six games on Sunday afternoon.

At 2 p.m. eastern, the Spartans tip off against the Nebraska-Omaha Mavericks,  a Division II team from the Mid-America Intercollegiate Athletic Association. 

The Mavericks are 3-5 this season, but are coming off a win against the Northern Illinois Huskies. Michigan State is the biggest non-conference game on the Nebraska-Omaha schedule, so the Mavs will definitely be jacked up for this game at Breslin. Who knows, maybe the Spartans basketball team is depressed with the rest of Sparty nation after last night's heartbreaking football loss and the Mavericks will catch them off-guard. Don't bet on it, though. 

Senior Draymond Green leads the Spartans this season with 13.1 points and 10.7 rebounds per game. Keith Appling is averaging just over 12 points per game. 

The Mavericks are led by Mitch Albers, who is scoring 20.3 points and dishing out four assists per game.
