DETROIT - As part of a college basketball showcase, Oakland will face Michigan State on Saturday, Dec. 16th, 8 p.m., at Little Caesars Arena. The Golden Grizzlies and Spartans will follow Detroit Mercy against Michigan in the first-ever college basketball games played at LCA.
"We are honored and privileged to be a part of this event," said men's basketball head coach Greg Kampe. "The relationships between the Horizon League and Olympia Entertainment is an important one and we are excited about being part of the first college basketball games at Little Caesars Arena."
Oakland has met MSU 15 times on the hardwood, falling in each contest. The Golden Grizzlies took then-No. 1 Michigan State to overtime at The Palace of Auburn Hills two years ago, before falling 99-93.
