The No. 7-seeded Michigan State Spartans make the program’s 24th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance on Friday night when the team takes the court against the No. 10-seeded Davidson Wildcats of the Atlantic 10 Conference. The matchup will mark the first ever contest between the two programs.
Davidson won the regular season A-10 Conference title, but fell in the conference tournament final to the Richmond Spiders. While the matchup will be between two programs who have never played one another, it will feature former Michigan State point guard Foster Loyer on the Davidson roster.

Michigan State’s streak of 24-straight NCAA Tournaments is a Big Ten record and is also tied for the third-longest in NCAA history (Kansas, 32, 1990-2022; North Carolina, 27, 1975-2001; Duke, 24, 1996-2019). The Spartans’ streak is also the second-longest active streak in the nation behind Kansas’ 32. Head Coach Tom Izzo’s 24 consecutive appearances is also tied with Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski for the most by a single coach in NCAA history.
The 2022 NCAA Tournament also marks the 35th appearance by MSU in program history, and the Spartans post a 69-33 record overall, led by Izzo’s 52-21 record in the NCAA Tournament and eight Final Fours, along with the 2000 national title.
