MSU to play five dynasties in 2003-04 schedule
The Spartans will play last year's national runner-up Kansas on Nov. 25 in Lawrence, Kan. The Spartans will then host Duke on Duke on Dec. 3, before traveling to Detroit to take on the Wildcats of Kentucky at Ford Field on Dec. 13. So far the "Basketbowl" has already sold more than 32,000 tickets to the event as of Saturday. The two schools are looking to set the NCAA basketball attendance record, which was set in 1990 when Notre Dame played Louisana State at the Superdome in New Orleans. On Dec. 20, MSU goes to Pauley Pavilion to take on the Bruins. The Spartans will wrap up it's non-conference schedule with a rematch with Syracuse, the 2003 champion, in Syracuse on Dec. 20. The two teams met last year in the Breslin Center, with the Orangemen squeaking out a 76-75 in late February. Those five teams have combined to win 24 national championships and made it to 65 Final Fours. MSU will also earn the distinction as the first team to play Duke, Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse and UCLA.
