Michigan State Spartans are in the Final Four? Yes they are!!! The Spartans have had a rough season with numerous loses under 10 points but none of that matters at this point. Most team goals for the year is to improve from last year or win a championship. Michigan State is looking for their next one since 2000. Our first look at the team was at the prestigious Orlando Classic were they played strong but lost down the stretch 61-56 to Kansas. The Spartans lost by 10 points to Duke early in the season. These two teams are very familiar with each other. If Michigan State wants to get to the championship game they will need to keep Duke off the free throw line, not let them jump out to an early lead and get outstanding play from the starters / bench.
