Jayhawks try to prepare for Michigan State's talented big men

19 March 2017, 01:57 | Winifred Adams

Walton finished the game with 2x points and led his time like he's done so many times this season. That experience wasn't enough to slow the Spartans once they took control midway through the first half, with Miami being outrebounded 36-23 and allowing 17 second-chance points by Michigan State.

Mason, Josh Jackson, and Devonte' Graham are part of a Kansas team that is as balanced as any team in the country.

TNT will broadcast the game live beginning at 8:20 p.m. No matter what happens the rest of the way, Wichita State will go down as one of the most underseeded teams in tournament history, and that's bad luck for Kentucky, which did not have its A-game, or B-game or C-game for that matter, in a win over Northern Kentucky in the first round.

The Spartans start three first-year players, including 6-foot-7 wing Miles Bridges, who averages 16.7 points and 8.3 rebounds and was named the Big Ten freshman of the year.

OSU was flawless in 10 trips to the charity stripe in the opening half, but U-M held a distinct advantage in turnovers, committing just two while forcing eight as the Wolverines converted the miscues into 10 points.

The total has gone under in four of Michigan State's last five games against Kansas. The Jayhawks can run and put up points in a hurry, but also play a stout defense that will bury a Spartans team that can struggle to score. Irvin had another pivotal game with 16 points (6-11 FG, 4-6 3-point) and three assists while playing all 40 minutes. Sophomore forward Kenny Goins had six points in 12 minutes. But they had ended the regular season with an eight-game winning streak.

The Spartan freshman is a projected lottery-pick in the next National Basketball Association draft and can take over games.

That game nearly was Izzo's last at MSU. "And I'm sure in the state of MI they thought totally otherwise".

Cowboys finish the season 20-13, and on a four-game losing streak and have not won a NCAA Tournament games since beating Tennessee in 2009.

"It's just, I won't say it's ho-hum, but it gets to be".

Over the last 13 games, during which MI is 11-2, Abdur-Rahkman has averaged 11.6 points.

Izzo stands 7-5 against Self counting games when the KU coach was at IL and Tulsa.

The Oklahoma State men's basketball team's season came to an end Friday, as the Cowboy fell 92-91 to MI in the NCAA Tournament's round of 64 in Indianapolis. The Sweet 16 opens on Thursday.

"I was anxious about whether these freshmen would handle the big stage, even though they've been on one, but it's still the NCAA Tournament, and the difference now is it's one-and-done time", Izzo said. This means that the vast majority of people that bet on the game watched their tickets go up in flames with that final buzzer-beater, while sportsbooks saw a losing game flip to a big win.
