MSU will take on LSU in Washington, DC in the Sweet-16 on Friday, March 29 - tip-time at 7:09pm

We will have a more in-depth preview later in the week, and coverage from the Sweet-16 game in DC (and the Elite-8 match-up if MSU advances, which the team has a very good chance of doing).

For now: MSU is the #3 team in Kenpom’s rankings (#4 in adjusted offensive efficiency, and #8 in adjusted defensive efficiency), and LSU is the #18 team in Kenpom’s rankings (#13 in adjusted offensive efficiency, and #48 in adjusted defensive efficiency).

These numbers indicate that MSU has a favorable match-up - LSU is the worst defensive team left in the tournament, is without Will Wade their head coach due to NCAA issues, and has a number of very talented NBA caliber players.
