Michigan State Basketball: Potential Trap Games for Spartans in 2013-14
Mike Carter-USA TODAY Sports
The Spartans have been No. 1 since knocking off Kentucky three weeks ago.

Climbing to the top of rankings is difficult, but staying there is an even bigger challenge.

A marked team, No. 1-ranked Michigan State (7-0) will get an extra effort each night it takes the floor, especially on the road. For some teams, hosting the top-ranked Spartans will serve as a March Madness-like game well before the actual tournament.

For other teams there won't be an appearance in the tourney, so giving it to the Spartans is the only shot at glory.

This slideshow will look at the dreaded “trap games” that await Michigan State.
