Michigan State Issues New Injury Update For Kyle Ahrens

No other program has won the tournament as many times as Michigan State, and this one was particularly sweet. MI played solid first halves each time but had no answer after halftime.

Tom Izzo said at halftime that injuries are part of the sport.

In a lot of ways, this bracket feels very similar to the one that MI basketball won last season in order to reach the Final Four.

Michigan State: The Spartans head to the tournament with high hopes, though their rotation figures to be a little thinner after Ahrens went down.

And even though the Wolverines have to be disappointed with the third straight loss to Michigan State, their spot in the field of 68 seems like a relatively good one with Gonzaga as the top seed.

Michigan State closed out the game against a worn out Wisconsin team, winning 67-55 behind Big Ten Player of the Year Cassius Winston's 21 points and six assists.

Michigan State forward Kyle Ahrens was taken from the court on a stretcher with a left leg injury in the first half.

MSU coach Tom Izzo spoke in the United Center about the possibility of facing MI while the Wolverines were playing Minnesota in the second semifinal. "That's what we play for here", Winston said.

Wisconsin was led by Ethan Happ, who came back from a poor performance against Nebraska with 20 points, six rebounds, three assists, four blocks and two steals. "We've got to embrace this opportunity, because we might not get it again". The Badgers closed to 47-41 on Khalil Iverson's three-point play before Winston converted a layup and Goins rattled home a 3-pointer to help run the lead back out to nine with 9:12 to go.

Ahrens returned to the sideline on crutches with just over 14 minutes left on the game. Whenever you're playing in games that matters in the state, that's big. They also managed just three fast-break points. The Spartans were awarded a No. 2 seed in the NCAA Tournament and will face Bradley in the first round on Thursday in Des Moines, Iowa. The Spartans beat the Wolverines 77-70 on February 24 and 75-63 last Saturday.
