Michigan State Got Absolutely Hosed By NCAA Tournament Selection Committee

Michigan State Got Absolutely Hosed By NCAA Tournament Selection Committee

"All in all, a gritty performance by us", coach Tom Izzo said.

"I'm just happy it's not (broken)", he said.

Now, the latest Associated Press Top 25 poll has been released and both Michigan State (No. 5) and Michigan (No.8) moved up. For MSU, a number one seed in the NCAA Tournament is also up for grabs.

MI had some blowout wins in its ideal start, beating Villanova by 27 on the road and topping North Carolina by 17 at home before blowing out Purdue in the teams' Big Ten opener. Goins added 13 points - four 3-pointers - and 12 rebounds in 36 minutes. Cassius Winston followed with 14 points. "We have a chance to do it, and we're going to do everything we can to win this championship because we didn't get the last one".

In a casual battle for a rebound, Ahrens came down awkwardly as his ankle rolled up on a defender's and he collapsed, screaming in agony. Freshman Aaron Henry scored six points on two 3s, and grabbed a career-best 11 rebounds in 30 minutes - eclipsing his previous high of eight boards against U-M on March 9.

He will serve alongside Rupert Murdoch , the founder of Fox, and Lachlan Murdoch , the company's chief executive and chairman. Disney was still informing some senior 21st Century Fox employees of their status with the new company as late as Monday.


"I asked them all today, 'What do you want to do?'" Izzo said.

Georgia State 73, Texas-Arlington 64: Malik Benlevi hit four 3-pointers and finished with 16 points, and Georgia State advanced to a second straight NCAA Tournament with a victory over Texas-Arlington in the Sun Belt Conference Tournament final. MI played solid first halves each time but had no answer after halftime. "We've got to get our revenge". The Michigan State defense has forced opposing teams to turn the ball over on just 15.1 percent of all possessions (ranked 345th among Division I teams). He returned to the sideline on crutches in the second half. After a jumper from Khalil Iverson with 9:35 to play, Wisconsin cut the deficit to 49-43. Trice went 1-for-6 from 3, and Brad Davison was held without a triple on five attempts.

"For us, especially me, Austin, X and Charles to win back-to-back-to-back", MI junior Jon Teske said, "it'd be something special".

There's a cliche that says it's hard to beat a team three times in a season but reality says otherwise. "So, run them off that three-point line, keep them as a mid-range team, that was our gameplan".
