5 Things For March 25: MSU Women Face North Carolina in Round Two
1. The women's hoops team plays the Tar Hells tonight in the second round of the NCAA tournament. This is essentially a road game for MSU, as the game is in Chapel Hill. UNC squeaked by UT Martin 60-58 on Saturday. The Heels had to overcome a 50-32 defect with about ten minutes to go to pull off the victory.
MSU bounced back from their blowout loss in the Big Ten tournament with a lopsided win over Hampton. The game is at 7:10 on ESPN2 and 1240 WJIM.
2. The Spartans men's basketball team landed a third commitment to their 2014 class. Marvin Clark is a wing from Sunrise Christian Academy in Kansas. He had offers from Indiana, Seton Hall, Kansas State, and Iowa State.
3. Mark Dantonio met with the media yesterday to release a depth chart and talk about spring practice. There was some shuffling of the depth chart, particularly at linebacker and defensive tackle. Joe Rexrode has you covered with his observations on Freep.com.
4. The Tigers 'interesting' off-season continued yesterday. They traded newly-acquired Steve Lombardozzi Jr. for 37 year-old shortstop Alex Gonzalez. Gonzalez had a .177/.203/.230 slash line over 118 plate appearances last year, and has not played shortstop full-time in over two years. Yikes.
5. The Pistons ended a few streaks last night. The ended a five-game losing streak, and a 13-game road losing streak with a win over Utah. Andre Drummond had 19 points and 14 rebounds. For those of you concerned about maintaining the Pistons top-8 protected draft pick, here are your league standings. They are in that magical eight spot right now, one game 'ahead' of Cleveland.
