Michigan State has made it back to the final four for the second year in a row and on Saturday the Spartans will go up against Butler University in Indianapolis as they continue to fight their way back into the NCAA Championship game once again.
State fans, including Lions’ third-year pro quarterback and Spartan Drew Stanton, are looking forward this weekend.
Stanton on Michigan State going to the Final Four: “It’s huge. It shows the ability that (Tom) Izzo has to get as much out of his players as he does. Last year I think that it wasn’t so much of a surprise as is it was this year with them being a five seed and having some question marks going into the tournament.
“It just shows what they’re capable of doing when a team comes together and that’s why it’s so much fun to watch these games. Who would have thought Butler would have been in it at this point in time? That’s why you go out there and play the games and they’ve had a close call pretty much the whole way through.”
