Michigan State hangs on to top upset-minded Bucknell

Michigan State hangs on to top upset-minded Bucknell”

The Orange (23-13) forced the Spartans (30-5) to settle for 3-pointers all afternoon and it worked brilliantly for Hall of Fame coach Jim Boeheim against Hall of Fame coach Tom Izzo.

Michigan State must beat Syracuse first.

The most recent meeting between the two teams came on December 7, 2010, in the Jimmy V Classic.

KANSAS STATE 69, CREIGHTON 59 Barry Brown scored 18 points and ninth-seeded Kansas State posted a wire-to-wire victory despite playing without leading scorer Dean Wade.

The Orange's average margin of victory in their last five games has been 0.4, down from 3.1 for the season.

The first half was Syracuse's kind of game.

So far in the Big Dance, the Spartans are living up to that hype, taking their first step toward Izzo's eighth Final Four as Michigan State (30-4) dumped scrappy No. 14 Bucknell (25-10) of the Patriot League in the first round of the NCAA tourney, 82-78. Auburn, playing under the cloud of a federal investigation, survived a poor shooting performance to win in its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 2003.

Michigan State may have a rough offseason because it will likely lose Bridges and freshman Jaren Jackson to the National Basketball Association draft and the school's crisis on campus isn't going away anytime soon.

Cincinnati 68, Georgia State 53 - Jarron Cumberland had 27 points and 11 rebounds to set career highs in both categories as Cincinnati recovered after blowing a 10-point lead in the second half to beat pesky Georgia State in the South Region. Now-SU assistant coach Allen Griffin scored 14 points off the bench and was one of two Orange players to reach double figures, along with Jason Hart.

A lot of credit for that control goes to Miles Bridges who was active and effective, scoring a game-high 29 points while adding nine rebounds and four assists.

It was over when: Michigan State led 44-40 at halftime.

For all but two plays, Winston did just that against Bucknell Friday night.

Despite that, it was able to gain an at-large bid into the NCAA Tournament out of the ACC. The Orange made 24 of 31 free-throw attempts in the game, while Michigan State went to the line just 16 times, making 11. It's unfortunate but everything revolves around what you do in this tournament if you're good.

Syracuse will face Duke (28-7) on Friday in the Midwest Region semifinals.

Syracuse held its third straight opponent to less than 60 points in this tournament. The sophomore sensation (29 points) collected all the whispers of "overhyped" and "overrated" from throughout this season and put them nicely to bed for the evening. Brandon Triche and Michael Carter-Williams, SU's starting backcourt, each fouled out.

Syracuse's win came down to fouls in the last few seconds of the game. The Roy Williams-led Tarheels used a 35-of-65 (.538) shooting night to top the Orange. He finished with 16 points, scoring 13 in the second half as the Tigers tried to rally.
