MSU game preview roundup

Golden Grizzlies Gameplan
Key Personnel Match-Up
Reggie Hamilton vs. Kalin Lucas
"Not only is it the second straight game against a Big Ten team, but it's also the second straight game against an All-American caliber point guard. Kalin Lucas has had a few strong games this year, but as Andy Katz pointed out earlier this week, he still hasn't regained his explosiveness after injuring his Achilles last March."
Lansing State Journal
"It's exciting to have the opportunity to play at the Palace," Bader said. "I can't really go into this game thinking, 'Oh my God, I've watched this team all my life.' "
FSN Detroit
"(Tom) Izzo has a history of getting results when he pushes buttons like he's pushing right now. His team better have done some serious soul-searching, that's for sure, because Oakland has Cinderella-like potential."
"With its defensive tenacity and hard work on the glass, Oakland resembles a typical Michigan State team. Oakland ranks among the top-30 teams nationally in rebounding margin (plus 8.2)."
