Spartan Confidential podcast: Michigan State basketball earns historic win at Duke
EAST LANSING, MI – Well that was fun.
Tom Izzo and the Michigan State basketball team picked up its first win in program history at Cameron Indoor Stadium when it beat Duke 75-69 on Tuesday night.
It was a historic win for the program and a key momentum builder for the 2020 team, which moved to 3-0 on the season and should be ranked in the Top 5 if it takes care of business against Detroit Mercy and Western Michigan this weekend.

Rocket Watts, Aaron Henry and some surprising performances off the bench keyed the Spartan win at Duke, but could this be one of Tom Izzo’s best defensive teams?
The guys then shift gears to football to breakdown the Spartans’ shocking win against No. 8 Northwestern before asking the question, does Michigan State have a chance vs. Ohio State?
