State battled, but some clutch shots by Minnesota--and more importantly, 17-33 free throw shooting by Your Spartans--doomed us to a loss sadly reminiscent of the 03-04 dark years. Minnesota probably punched their NCAA tournament ticket, but our hopes for a 3 seed are now dashed (and we might now be looking at a 5 seed. Bleh).
MSU hockey was also crushed by Michigan, making tonight a crappy evening, indeed. So grab a glass of scotch and drown your sorrows here.
