Iowa takes a 4-4 Big Ten record on the road to Michigan State Thursday night. The Spartans are 5-4 in the league race and coach Fran McCaffery says a key has been the improvement of guards Tyson Walker and A.J. Hoggard. Walker is averaging better than 14 points per game and connecting on better than 41 percent from three point range.

The Hawkeyes will be trying to bounce back from a lackluster effort in a 93-77 loss at Ohio State.

McCaffery says the Hawkeyes will need to be much better on defense than they were against the Buckeyes.
