No. 3 Seed Michigan State Faces No. 11 Seed Syracuse on Sunday

Tyus Battle had 17 points, Oshae Brissett scored 15, and 11th-seeded Syracuse zoned Michigan State out of the tournament, 55-53 on Sunday to advance to the Sweet 16. "That's got to change if we're going to be moving on". The Spartans are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games vs. ACC opponents, however, just 2-8-2 ATS in their last 12 games following a straight up win. The 7-foot-2, 290-pound center was ruled out for the rest of the NCAA Tournament after being hurt Friday night in a win over Cal State Fullerton, but he warmed up and looked like he was trying to play against the Bulldogs.

Despite their appearance, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said his group hasn't been quite as physical as he'd like this season, and he has worries of his own in the form of the 2-3 zone and SU's unprecedented length.

Longtime Syracuse coach Jim Boeheim knows how gut-wrenching the NCAA Tournament can be to everyone but the eventual national champion. Michigan State has an 11-man rotation.

Here are the Michigan State vs Syracuse game live stream details, time, and more.

Michigan State and Syracuse play at 2:40 p.m. ET on Sunday, March 18. "I've seen countless situations where I've been around him where he always does the right thing, 100 percent of the time".

When asked whether also possessed the same muscle tone as his opponents from Michigan State, Dolezaj took a hard pass. Syracuse's zone defense may not allow for much inside but it will be important for Michigan State to establish a presence there. Jaylen Barford scored 15 points for Arkansas (23-12).

Izzo insisted he will be back next season to help the school and his program bounce back from a scandal stemming from sexual assault allegations were handled against Larry Nassar, a former Michigan State doctor, who was sentenced to decades in jail.

All five Spartans starters scored at least 10 points, including Morris Peterson, who led all scorers with 21 points.

"This tournament just breaks your heart", Boeheim said. The Orange were able to hold MSU scoreless for 4:59 until a pair of free throws from Jackson made it 10-9 game with 11:46 until halftime. The Orange, meanwhile have already picked up two wins, beating Arizona State and TCU by a combined nine points. They were 11 of 16 at the line and missed the front end of one and ones to take even more potential points away.

Nevada (28-7) erased a 14-point, second-half deficit and tied it at 68-68 when Jordan Caroline hit one of two free throws with 3.8 seconds left in regulation.
