Like much of the nation, the Spartans were still trying to process the 90-81 loss in the locker room
MSU had to learn the hard way……with a bulls-eye on your back, you will get everybody’s “A” game and you have to bring your “A” or you go home early….especially in the tournament when it’s “one and done”. That’s exactly what happened today. I take nothing away from Middle Tennessee State. They have some guys that can flat out play and they showed it. They hit the big shots, they seemed to get every loose ball and came back after MSU made their runs. They deserved to win. They led the game from start to finish, so I can’t say they were lucky; they were great!!
I feel bad for the Spartans because I thought they had a chance to make a deep run this year and get back to the Final Four, but it was not to be.
