Ann Arbor – Michigan basketball coach John Beilein does not hate Michigan State. Never has. Never will.
That’s just not his style.
The in-state rivals – Michigan State is ranked No. 4 and Michigan is unranked – face each other on Saturday at the Breslin Center, in their only regular-season meeting of the year.
Beilein was asked about a comment Michigan State coach Tom Izzo has made about respecting, but not liking, Michigan’s program.
