The Michigan State Spartans will look to avoid starting their season 0-2 for the second straight year.
The Michigan State Spartans take on the Kansas Jayhawks in the Champions Classic at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta on Tuesday night. The No. 21 Spartans are coming off a tough loss in their season opener to the UConn Huskies. The No. 7 Jayhawks won big in their 2012-13 debut against Southeast Missouri State.
But this game is likely to be decided in the frontcourt, as both teams boast powerful big men. Senior center Jeff Withey led the Jayhawks with 17 points, 12 rebounds, and five blocks against SE Missouri State.
