ESPN basketball analyst Jay Bilas breaks down Saturday's Michigan State-Wisconsin matchup:

No. 12 Michigan State at Wisconsin
Sunday, 1:30 ET


Michigan State Strengths:The Spartans are deep, very disciplined and varied offensively. Tom Izzo runs a variety of multiple-option sets that get open jump shots for his wings and post-ups for Paul Davis. The well-designed plays are why the Spartans lead the Big Ten in scoring (84.4 ppg) and are third in field goal shooting (51 percent). Chris Hill, Maurice Ager, Kelvin Torbert and Alan Anderson are all good shooters, and all take good shots.
