The Michigan State Spartans arguably have one of the best coaches when it comes to NCAA Tournaments.
He’ll put on his skills in the Round of 64 against the MTSU Blue Raiders on Friday afternoon in St. Louis.
Tom Izzo always seems to have his team playing at another level when the calendar flips to March and that is currently the case once again.
MTSU Blue Raiders
Middle Tennessee and the NCAA Tournament have been a very rare occasion.
The Blue Raiders will be making just their 2nd NCAA tourney appearance in the last 27 years as they ran the table in the C-USA tourney over the past weekend.
MTSU has found their success with having not just one player contribute. The Blue Raiders have 4 players that average double figures, led by Giddy Potts. The 6-2 guard averages 15 points per game and came up clutch during the C-USA tourney.
The key here for the Blue Raiders will be the inside game. They have been exposed on many occasions for lacking height and going up against a much stronger and bigger Spartans team doesn’t make things easy for them. They’ll need use their 3 point shooting and catch fire quickly to stay in this one.
Michigan State Spartans
The Spartans have a strong case for being upset with the committee.
Michigan State is one of the hottest teams in the nation and after clinching another Big Ten title, they were snubbed of a one seed they rightfully deserved. However, Tom Izzo is a good enough coach to not make that an issue as the Spartans know they have the talent to beat anyone in the nation.
The Spartans ran through the Big Ten tourney and knocked off Purdue in the championship game by 4. This comes after defeating the Terrapins and Buckeyes.
As stated earlier, when the calendar flips to March, the Spartans just simply turn it on. Tom Izzo is 100-42 in the month of March in his career, and has led the Spartans deep into March on many occasions.
