Spartans Tripped Up

Posted on April 1, 2013 by

That pesky Duke team. Touch fouls, bad shooting and turnovers were contributors to the loss but not the main reason. We discussed it in a previous post, the inability to stop one monster scorer (Curry, 29 points) killed our chances to win. He was on fire from 3-point range and perfect from the line and […]

MSU Flushing the Dukies

Posted on March 28, 2013 by

Ok, I admit it. Duke always makes me nervous. I guess it is out of respect for what they have been able to accomplish over the past 30 years under Coach K. (I am not even going to take the time to look up how to spell his name) Tom Izzo even holds up Duke […]

Izzo Back in the (Sweet 16) Saddle

Posted on March 26, 2013 by

March 2013 – It is no great surprise that Tom Izzo has taken his Michigan State Spartans into their 5th Sweet Sixteen in 6 years. A feat matched only by Kansas. As a highly ranked 3 seed, the committee expected as much. It is always nice when you meet and then exceed expectations. The Spartans […]

That Smell Ain’t Roses What a great game! The Spartans looked great. BJ Cunningham is a stud who improved his draft stock. Beastly Spartan defense. Cousins was able to move the ball and put up points. All these things were true on Saturday night. The problem is MSU came up a little short in the […]
