The Michigan State Spartans at full strength have lived up to the hype as they set their sights on the Final Four, assuming they can get past a tough Connecticut Huskies team that just eliminated Iowa State. Either UConn or MSU will reach the Final Four when we watch Michigan State vs Connecticut online free live streaming on CBS Sports this afternoon.
The Spartans were a train wreck headed into the NCAA Tournament having lost 7 of their last 12 games. Over that poor stretch, which accounted for several months, they were missing key players for an extended duration due to injury. It wasn’t until early March that they returned to full strength, and they’re finding that early season magic at the right time.
The first game back at full strength for the Spartans on March 1 was a loss to Illinois. Since then they quickly gelled and proved to the nation and world that they’re a force to be reckoned with and favorite to win it all after blowing through the Big Ten tournament with wins over Michigan and Wisconsin. No one takes their four seed seriously.
The Spartans faced their toughest test on Friday when they faced top-ranked Virginia, a team that likes to play big and grind out games. Michigan State was able to play that style of game and come out on top, setting up what should be a great Spartans UConn game this evening from Madison Square Garden.
The last time UConn played Michigan State was at the beginning of last season when the Huskies were ineligible for tournament play. The Connecticut Michigan State basketball game was played in Germany and UConn came out on top by a final score of 66-62.
What was most impressive about Connecticut’s win on Friday is that star Shabazz Napier was not the high scorer. Napier did nail four three-pointers in the first half, then went quiet for the rest of the game with only one field goal made. Instead, DeAndre Daniels stepped up with 27 points to lead the way, 19 of which came in a decisive second half.
