We're Dancing: Michigan State Spartans

22353_jea_fea_sparty_080707_medium

Location: Home of the Will Ferrell's Flint, Michigan "Tropics"

Enrollment: 46,045

Record: 26-6 (15-3)

Leading Scorers: Kalin Lucas (14.8 ppg), Raymar Morgan (10.8 ppg), Goran Suton (9.5 ppg)

What to know:

  • The Spartans are head and shoulders above the rest of the Big Ten, in the preaseason that might not register as a stand alone, shining point but the Big Ten may need to recieve some credit.  The last time the MIchigan State Spartans got a #2 seed, they were able to make it to the stage of the Final Four.
  • Tom Izzo's crew boasts a #6 ranked RPI and a #6 strength of schedule. 
  • The Spartans are 9-1 on the road and 5-3 on neutral courts so the unfamiliar arenas of the NCAA Tournament will have little to no effect on Michigan State.

Projected Performance:  With West Virginia, Kansas and Boston College in the southern half of the Midwestern Bracket, we see this Michigan State team too vulnerable to escape.  Certainly no Final Four for this #2 seed.
