The Lansing State Journal contrasts the styles of Memphis and Michigan State, looks at the rise of Kalin Lucas, gives a point-counterpoint,
analyzes the hockey team's match-up with Colorado College in the NCAA Tournament and the importance of defenseman Jeff Petry to the team on the ice, and gives a run down of nightlife hot-spots in the East Lansing area where fans can catch either game tonight.
The Detroit News looks at Izzo's
attitude heading into the big game, says Drew Neitzel and Raymar Morgan must be on top of their games to win tonight, and breaks
down various aspects of the match-up.
