Watch Michigan State vs Virginia Basketball 2014

The Virginia Cavaliers face the realistic possibility of becoming the first top-seeded team eliminated from the NCAA Tournament tonight if they cannot find a way to solve a full strength Michigan State Spartans squad that has seemed unstoppable in their basketball games in 2014. Find out UVA or MSU will win this extremely tough game to call when we watch Michigan State vs Virginia online free live streaming on the TBS cable channel.

It has been three weeks since the Michigan State Spartans finally got their full roster back after the injuries began following an 18-1 start to the regular season. This month they have been nearly unbeatable and have only lost once in 2014. Now the Spartans have a chance to advance to the Elite Eight playing one of the first NCAA Tournament games in Madison Square Garden since 1961 with tonight’s UVA and MSU game.

Virginia may be the number one seed in their region but many view them as the underdog in this game. The Cavaliers haven’t been to the Sweet 16 since 1995 so this is new territory for the school. Meanwhile Michigan State has reached the Sweet 16 six times in the last seven years. The Spartans definitely have experience on their side.

The Michigan State Virginia basketball game should be won inside where both teams have proven to be strong rebounders. Virginia is tough in the paint having allowed only 55.5 points per game during the season, tops in the nation. MSU scores nearly 77 points per game so there will be many battles in a game that should resemble pro ball rather than college students.

The Cavaliers average 10 points less per game than the Spartans so strong defense is imperative toward their ability to win tonight’s game. If the Spartans are able to score like they have for the majority of the season, tonight’s nearly 20-years in the making return trip to the Sweet 16 for UVA will have a bitter conclusion.

Some critics are calling for a Michigan State blowout, but I think this game will be decided by a final score with six points margin of difference or less.
