  • Michigan State forward Xavier Tillman is double teamed by Michigan guard Zavier Simpson and forward Moritz Wagner during the second half of an NCAA Big Ten Conference tournament semifinal college basketball game Saturday

They also dropped the conference tournament final against MI.

Kansas is the No. 1 seed in the Midwest, and MSU could be headed toward a Sweet 16 matchup with No. 2 seed Duke in Omaha. At one point, Michigan State ripped off 13 wins in a row before falling to Michigan in the Big Ten tourney semifinals. His work has been featured on Sports Illustrated, ESPN.com, FOXSports.com, CBSSports.com and many others.

"I think our kids will be motivated to play in Detroit", Izzo said.

In its first trip to the NCAA Tournament in school history, the UNC Women's basketball team will play the University of MI at 3 p.m. Friday in Waco, Texas. They're a talented, well-coached team. The Golden Gophers are 11-9 (.550) in NCAA Tournament games, highlighted by a trip to the 2004 Final Four.

The Bulls put together a solid resume, fueled by last year's disappointment. If you judge the league by how it ranks among the six major conferences, this might not be the year the league breaks its 20-year drought of not winning an NCAA Tournament.

But the Spartans have not shot better than 50 percent in each of their last five games, including in their last outing against the Wolverines, during which the team shot just 38 percent, its worst shooting mark of the season.

Season recap: Few teams have had as dominant of a year as the Spartans. Past year they went 22-10 and advanced to the Mid-American Conference semifinals. "We don't want to be a team that showed up and wasn't ready to play, we want to make sure we're prepared to give our best against MI". The Jayhawks eliminated the Spartans, 90-70, in the second round of the NCAA Tournament a year ago in Tulsa, Okla.

"We really think this game is a microcosm of life and it's not about the end result of a game, it's how we position ourselves for the rest of our lives". If the Wolverines are annoyed about that, this should balance it out: The No. 1 seed in their region is Xavier, the weakest of the four.

Sophomores Miles Bridges and Joshua Langford have also had their struggles on offense lately.

If the Wolverines advance to the second round, they will face the victor of host No. 2-seed Baylor and Grambling State. Before that, you need to go back to 2011 to find one. It will take an incredible run to get to the Final Four, but UM just won four games in four days, so anything is possible. "But I know for some of them, it's gonna be special".
