Duke 71, MSU 61 -- Season over sadness thread

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

Three of the last four times MSU has been eliminated from the NCAA Tournament, it's because the offense sputtered.

An atrocious second half did the Spartans in, as they fell 71-61 to Duke in the Sweet 16.

The loss isn't on the refs, though there certainly was plenty to complain about. They didn't cost MSU the game, though.

This was pretty much a worst-case scenario. A terrific opportunity dashed. Choked out of them. At one point, MSU had three baskets, seven turnovers and 10 fouls in the second half.

Gotta make the Final Four next year.
