Michigan State simply gained the Large Ten Event, and their reward for doing so was getting completely hosed by the NCAA Event choice committee. They’re in the identical Japanese area as Duke, the highest total seed within the match, in a call that’s going to pressure credulity when the committee will get round to placing somebody on tv to justify it.
Together with the Large Ten Event, Sparty had three wins over Michigan, two wins over Wisconsin, two wins over Iowa, and wins in opposition to Purdue, Maryland, Minnesota, Texas, Florida, and UCLA.
Yearly it looks like the Large Ten Event sport ends too late for the choice committee to correctly consider it, and this 12 months Michigan State was a sufferer of those circumstances.
Duke versus Michigan State could be one heckuva Elite eight matchup if each groups make it there.
