2014 NCAA Tournament: Open Thread for Michigan State vs. Delaware

The Spartans begin their climb to the NCAA Title. Follow the action in our open thread!

YOUR MICHIGAN STATE SPARTANS vs. THE DELAWARE BLUE HENS

VETERANS MEMORIAL ARENA, SPOKANE, WASHINGTON

THURSDAY, MARCH 20th, 2014 - 4:40 PM EASTERN

TV: TNT

RADIO: SPARTAN SPORTS NETWORK

If the Spartans are to win the NCAA Title, they'll need a nine-game win streak. The fourth of those games is today, as the Spartans take on the Colonial Athletic Association champions, the Delaware Blue Hens. One thing I neglected to mention in my preview that commenter Mark in Chicago brought up -- the Blue Hens play fast; they're 10th in Division one in tempo. The Spartans haven't played anyone that quick in tempo this season, and hopefully that'll work to the Spartans advantage. Now that everyone's healthy again, I don't think depth is going to be an issue.

This is the open thread for Michigan State-Delaware. We have four rules here: no links to illegal game streams, no racial, homophobic, or misogynistic slurs, be cool to one another, and don't feed the trolls. Enjoy the game everyone.

GO GREEN, GO WHITE, BEAT DELAWARE.
