Any time a Tom Izzo-coached squad is in the NCAA Tournament, you can’t seem to count that team out. Izzo is one of the greatest current coaches in college basketball, and he continues to solidify his legacy each year. Talk about a game that could end on a last possession game winner, look no further than the eighth-seeded Miami Hurricanes (21-11) squaring up with the ninth-seeded Michigan State Spartans (19-14).
Neither team is satisfied with their final product in the regular season but both have the opportunity to change all that in the round of 64. Michigan State is set to make their astounding 2oth straight appearance in the Big Dance. This is easily one of the youngest teams Izzo has coached, but their upside is quite high and could be very dangerous if they put it all together in the tournament.
Miami and Michigan State are both aiming to bounce back after dropping three of their last five. The Hurricanes have been up and down in an absolutely stacked ACC, where they’ve shown they can contend. All in all, this matchup could be one of the best of the day.
With that, here’s all the other information you need to know to view the game.
