Michigan State’s Season is Over After Loss to Syracuse
Michigan State's season is over after the Spartans were eliminated by 11th-seeded Syracuse. Despite basically having a home court advantage crowd cheering them on in Detroit, the Spartans missed their last 14 shots from the field and lost 55-53.
Syracuse won for the third time in five days to secure an improbable Sweet 16 matchup against second-seeded Duke. Should be a really good game to watch.
Michigan State's loss is a bracket buster for many college hoops fans, with more than a quarter of those who filled out brackets on ESPN picking the Spartans to reach the Final Four.
Syracuse's zone defense gave the Spartans fits from the very beginning of the game. Michigan State made one shot in the last seven minutes of regulation and finished shooting 17-66 for the game. Here's more from WILX-TV 10.
