Game of the Week: Michigan State vs. Syracuse

Tonight, the #8 Spartans travel to Madison Square Garden to take on the #7 Orangemen, which will be this week's Game of the Week.  This will be the first true test for Syracuse (8-0), as Michigan State is their first ranked opponent.  On the other hand, Michigan State has played one of the toughest schedules in the country as they look to shake off a loss to the #1 Duke Blue Devils last week.  

With the high powered Spartan offense led by guards Kalin Lucas and Durrell Summers it seems as if the game lies in their shooting strokes.  Both average just under 15 points per game, but shoot over 40% from beyond the arc.  Syracuse is led by Junior forward, Kris Joseph, who is scoring 13.8 points per game.  Fellow forward Rick Jackson is a force to be reckoned with, as has already recorded six double-doubles in his first eight games.  

Be sure to tune in tonight on ESPN at 9 PM for this top ten matchup.  After the game, be sure to come back to The Point After for post-game analysis.
