Spartans going south

Michigan State earned its sixth straight berth into the NCAA Championship tournament on Sunday night. The Spartans with take on the No. 10 seed Colorado on Friday in the South Region.

MSU (19-12) is coming off a devastating 55-54 loss to Ohio State in the semifinals of the Big Ten tournament in Chicago on Saturday, but the Spartans need to shake it off before it faces off with a tough Colorado team.

The Buffaloes (20-11) come out of the tough Big 12 conference and should be a formidable opponent for the Spartans.

MSU head coach Tom Izzo said at  a press conference on Sunday that he's looking forward to getting his team prepared for it's sixth straight NCAA tournament and said seeding is not the most important thing, by no means.

"The seeding doesn't matter to me, to tell you the truth," Izzo said on "We're still finishing up our disappointment from (Saturday). But when you start to look at some of the 10 and 11 seeds, you realize there are a lot of awfully good basketball teams."

The winner of the MSU/Colorado game will face the winner of the No. 2 Florida/No. 15 Sam Houston State University on Sunday.
