MSU is a 2 seed the Midwest Region and all signs are pointing to a final four showdown at Ford Field for the NCAA Championships. The Spartans defeated Robert Morris Thursday (77-62) and USC in a bit of a nail biter on Sunday (74-69). Led by Travis Walton and his season-high 18 points, the Spartans put on a staunch unforgiving defense in the final four minutes of the game, holding them without a field goal.
Will the Big-Ten Champs be able to defeat powerhouse Kansas in the third round? I think Coach Tom Izzo has them pumping all on cylinders and the green and white fans are hoping that depth and experience are going to matter down the stretch.
Here is a stat that I love: "During his 14 years as the Spartans' head coach, every one of Tom Izzo's four-year seniors have advanced to at least one Final Four."
Here's hoping we'll be partying like it's 2000 again when all is said and done, those seniors and underclassman will be carrying on that tradition.
