ACC proves it was overrated

All season the ACC was widely considered the best league in the nation. It got nine teams into the NCAA tournament. Well, eight of them are gone now. So what does that tell you?

Tom Izzo: "After that first 7 minutes, we played some of the best ball we have, not only this year, but in a couple years."


Spartans overcome slow start, dominate Miami

Nick Ward scored 19 points to help Michigan State atone for last season's early NCAA Tournament disappointment with an opening-round 78-58 victory over Miami on Friday night.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Miami was a very good defensive team this season, one that limited Duke to 50 points in a 62-possession game just 21 days ago. You never would have known it tonight. Michigan State sliced Jim Larranaga's team up into ribbons, to the tune of 73 percent shooting inside the arc. The Hurricanes could not stop freshmen Nick Ward and Miles Bridges.

Sparty moves on

Jake Trotter ESPN Staff Writer 

As dominant as top-seeded Kansas was in its tournament opener, No. 9 seed Michigan State looked like a very dangerous next opponent for the Jayhawks during a 78-58 shellacking of Miami. Sunday's showdown in Tulsa will hinge heavily on the play of talented freshmen on both sides, including Kansas star wing and Detroit native Josh Jackson, who spurned Michigan State and Tom Izzo to sign with the Jayhawks.

Jake Trotter ESPN Staff Writer 

Michigan State's freshmen have been putting on an absolute show in their tournament debuts. Nick Ward has yet to miss a shot. Joshua Langford has drilled a pair of 3s. And Miles Bridges just delivered a monstrous rebound jam over two Miami defenders. Sparty is rolling in Tulsa.
