Lucia and Shaver will also preview this weekend's Big Ten Conference series against Michigan State. The Spartans come to Mariucci Arena this weekend for a two-game series -- Friday's 8 p.m. tilt is on the Big Ten Network while Saturday's 7 p.m. finale is on FOX Sports North PLUS (Channel Guide). Both games can also be heard live on the 1500 ESPN airwaves.
