NCAA Basketball Schedule, TV Times And More: Wolverines And Spartans Try To Stay On Roll

The Michigan Wolverines and Michigan State Spartans will both put their top 25 credentials on the line this week, though it should be a relatively quiet and probably harmless week for both teams.

Michigan, ranked No. 20 in the AP Poll and No. 18 in the ESPN/USA Today poll, play a pair of games against Southwestern Athletic Conference teams, hosting the 1-5 Arkansas Pine-Bluff Golden Lions on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. ET and then hosting the 2-3 Alabama A&M Bulldogs at 12:00 p.m. ET on Dec. 17. The Wolverines have won two straight, having most recently defeated the Iowa State Cyclones and Oakland Golden Grizzlies, and stand 7-2 overall.

Meanwhile, Michigan State joined the Wolverines in both Top 25 polls after knocking off previously No. 22 Gonzaga Zags 74-67 on Dec. 10. The Spartans, ranked No. 21 in the AP and No. 23 in the ESPN/USA Today poll, play just one game this week, as they host the 5-4 Bowling Green Falcons on Dec. 17 at 7:00 p.m. ET.
