    Since Matta arrived at OSU, the series is tied at 11 wins a piece.

    In those games, OSU has scored 1433 points, while MSU has scored 1432.

    7 of the last 8 games have been decided by 4 points or less.

    I knew we'd had some great games, but I didn't realize it was that even. The OSU game is my favorite game to watch in conference play, based mostly on the fact that OSU is typically one of the top teams, as well as style of play.

    Yep. Another classic. Which is why I consider sparty our bball rival. I know Michigan is yours though.

    buckeyes didn't make their free throws. Bottom line. Tough enough to beat sparty on the road as it is.

    Have you done an Izzo-Ryan comparison? At one time, Ryan had a big lead, but I believe Izzo has closed the gap the last couple of years

    No, I got those stats from a post on an MSU board. I assume they're correct, but I didn't look them up myself.
