MSU hoops started Big Ten play in the 1950-51 season. They finished 7th at 5-9 in conference play.
Yes, Spartan Men's Basketball began B1G play in 1950-1951. When I counted from the MSU MBB Media Guide for 2012-2013, they are 60-54 vs. Michigan (not factoring the vacated wins by Michigan in the 1990s), and 60-49 (counting Michigan's vacated wins).
Look it up yourself.
Better yet ask someone on the ummie board.
MSUSpartans.com under Men's Basketball section, and click on 2012-2013 Media Guide.
Big Ten Era: MSU leads 57-55
Pre-Big Ten Era: UM leads 40-17
Head-to-head record (dominated by pre-1950) is about the only all-time advantage UM has over MSU hoops. MSU holds the edge over UM in all-time wins, all-time winning pct, Big Ten winning pct, Big Ten championships, weeks ranked in AP poll, final appearances in AP poll, NCAA appearances, NCAA wins, NCAA Sweet Sixteens, NCAA Final Fours, NCAA NC's. UM does also hold the edge over MSU in NIT titles and major FBI-investigated cheating scandals. Keep in mind that, before even considering UM's lost decade of the 90's, MSU holds a solid edge over UM. After you take into account their scandal which vacated away several of their best years off the books, it's not even remotely close.
