It's time to take this number one seed out for a spin! Pete's preview is below if you'd like to reacquaint yourself with what Long Island is bringing to the table. One of the major storylines will be how the game will unfold with two teams who both want to run. It may seem like disaster for the Blackbirds to keep up with Michigan State but it's probably wisest that they stick to what brought them here.
We've already had one huge upset today in Missouri falling to Norfolk State so the Spartans can't simply take the night off. LIU-B has a chance to make history and Michigan State merely wishes to move on for a shot at Memphis or St. Louis.
In a personal note, if you have any fandom to spare and don't cheer across the board for in-state or Big Ten teams, throw my Ohio Bobcats some love and help them in this second half against Michigan!
