The State – 03/13/24


Today’s weather forecast is predicting partly cloudy skies with a high of 66 degrees and a low of 41 degrees.


MSU wrestling places 13th in Big Ten Championships, four Spartans qualify for NCAA Tournament

Michigan State wrestling traveled to College Park, Maryland, on March 9 and 10 for the wrestling Big Ten Championships. After two days of meets, the Spartans finished 13th out of 14th in the standings with a team score of 23.5 as they closed out their Big Ten season.

Four of Michigan State players will participate in the NCAA Tournament set to take place in Kansas City, Missouri, during the weekend of March 21st.


March Madness bid hangs in the balance for MSU men’s basketball at Big Ten Tournament

Before the 2023-2024 season, the Michigan State’s men’s basketball team expected to be fresh off a Big Ten regular-season title and penciled in as a top seed in March Madness by the time the conference tournament rolled around.

Instead, head coach Tom Izzo and the Spartans will play in the Big Ten Tournament at noon on Thursday, March 14 as the 8-seed in Minneapolis, MN, against 9-seed Minnesota in a game with major implications for how MSU feels heading into Selection Sunday.

The bottom line: Michigan State needs to beat Minnesota on Thursday if it wants a sweat-less Selection Sunday.

The good news for MSU is that, even in “down years,” the Spartans have found ways to manufacture tremendous success in March. Izzo’s eight Final Fours tell that story, as does his ability to reach them as low as a 7-seed. He’s won three Big Ten Tournament championships since 2014. The last time he missed the NCAA Tournament, none of his current players were born.

At its best, Michigan State basketball defends, rebounds and runs with relentless effort and success. It’s been the program’s mantra for 29 years under Izzo. This year, it’s been a struggle for his team to put all three together for extended periods of time.

Izzo said he’s imploring his team to be more aggressive in transition as tensions are heightened and fast breaks can change games.
