So Detriot will get the chance to see a school from its own state play for the national championship. Michigan State managed to knock off UConn on Saturday — their 2nd win over a No.1 seed in as many games. North Carolina took care of Villanova in the second game, and they’re the near-consensus favorite to win it all.
While Carolina obviously has superior talent, the Spartans have made their mark in this tournament by playing great defense and getting plenty of scoring from their bench. Michigan State will have to do both of those things if they expect to beat another No. 1 seed tonight. And I hear that the Tar Heels have some white guy that’s pretty good. You can’t get analysis like this anywhere else.
The game is tonight at 9 thirtysomething on CBS, which is great if you were planning to fall asleep during the last half hour of it.
