â€¢ Baylor won the 2021 NCAA tournament, the school’s first national championship. He brings an 11-game winning streak in Friday’s game, the longest active streak in the country.
â€¢ The Bears have returned only one starter from their national championship team to center Flo Thamba. He also sacked six reserves from that team, including leading scorer LJ Cryer (15.8 points per game).
â€¢ Michigan State has faced Baylor only once before: in the 2016 Battle 4 Atlantis, when the Bears won 73-58, en route to the tournament championship.
â€¢ Michigan State will play its third regular season tournament championship in the past five years. The Spartans won the 2017 PK80 Invitational and the 2018 Las Vegas Invitational (Michigan State did not play in a regular season tournament in 2020 due to COVID-19.)
â€¢ The Spartans rank second in the country in terms of defensive efficiency, with 86.6 points per hundred possessions, per Kenpom.com. Since Michigan State’s victory over Kansas, no team has scored more than 61 points against them or shot better than 37% from the ground.
