B1G BASKETBALL Open Thread: Opening Night

Basketball is officially back!

Yes you read that sub-headline correctly. NCAA D1 basketball resumes tonight (at least for B1G teams), and for many of us, it couldn’t come soon enough. This is still a football site, technically, but plenty of people around here like basketball too, so let’s talk about our basketball feelings together!

As usual, we have Michigan State to thank for giving us an early game that’s actually worth watching. Nothing against Maryland-Delaware, Wisconsin-Coppin State, or Omaha-Minnesota, but the game to watch tonight is number 1 Kansas against number 10 Michigan State from the deck of a space station or something probably.

Here’s the full schedule of B1G games tonight (all times EST):

Chicago State at Indiana

6:30 p.m. - BTN - no line

[10] Michigan State v. [1] Kansas in Indianapolis

7:00 p.m. - ESPN - Kansas -5.5 - State Farm Champions Classic
