The Michigan State Men's Basketball dropped to No. 18 in the week two Men's AP Poll after starting the season ranked No. 4.

MSU went 1-1 during their first week of action, headlined by a shocking upset to James Madison, losing 79-76 at home to kick off the 2023-24 season. 

The Spartans picked up their first win of the season last Thursday, defeating Southern Indiana 71-54. 

Michigan State will be tested again in week two, as they are set to face No. 9 ranked Duke on Tuesday night in the State Farm Champions Classic at 7:00 p.m. on ESPN. The Spartans will also welcome Butler to the Breslin Center on Friday as a part of the Gavitt Tipoff Games, which is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on FS1. 

Throughout the remainder of the non-conference schedule, MSU will have to fight to maintain its ranking in the AP Poll. The Spartans will also take on No. 3 ranked Arizona on Nov. 23 and No. 15 ranked Baylor on Dec. 16.
