Michigan State basketball vs. Duke: Scouting report, prediction

EAST LANSING — So it won’t be a 1-vs.-2 matchup, as many thought it could be when the season began a month ago.

It won’t even be a battle of top-10 teams in this week’s polls. A pair of upset losses, one for each team, erased that chance.

Regardless, No. 12 Michigan State basketball hosting No. 8 Duke in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge on Tuesday will be the biggest non-conference game at Breslin Center in years, if not decades.
