The Michigan State Spartans have one of the most difficult schedules to start the 2011-12 college basketball season, and they could be part of history Tuesday night as a result. Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski is tied with Bob Knight at 902 career victories for the most in Division I history, and a win over the Spartans would give the four-time national champion the record to himself. The Michigan State-Duke contest is the highlight of a very busy week for Michigan's college teams.
