Michigan State Drops to Texas Tech

The Michigan Sate basketball season came to a close at U.S. Bank Stadium Saturday night when MSU fell to Texas Tech 61 to 51 in the Final Four.

They ran into a buzz saw of a defense and a senior guard Matt Mooney who shot the lights out.

It was a tough loss for the Spartans, but they’ve got nothing to hand their heads about.

They cut down nets three times this season.

They’re going to have a few banners going up next year,m but that doesn’t take the pain away for Michigan State.

For Texas Tech, in the final three minutes, Culver drove for a bucket, hit three free throws and drained a three-pointer. The only other player on the court to score was Norense Odiase.

Michigan State coaches looked at Texas Tech’s dismantling of fellow Big Ten power Michigan in the Sweet 16, and they were actually encouraged. After all, the Red Raiders only scored 63. Well, this time they only scored 61. Against Virginia, they might only need 50. And unlike Virginia in its last two games, Texas Tech did not need a wild finish to get here.
