Draymond Green defends Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo

The Spartans and Wolverines both played into the late afternoon on Sunday and both had a quick turn around and quickly got to Des Moines, Iowa for their Thursday games.

Win by win, the league is backing up its brag. Winston said. "We can't be lackadaisical, anything like that". "And you sort of expect Big Ten coaches to make those kinds of statements, but the reality is we actually believe it". And I think [the Big Ten's success] has been great.

- When Minnesota tries to upset second-seeded Michigan State in Saturday's second round, it will be the earliest two Big Ten teams have played in the NCAA tournament since the expansion to 64 teams in 1985.

FOX 17 caught up with some fans as they made their way into the arena Thursday and two really stood out.

Henry finished with eight points, three rebounds and one assist in the win.

Tariq Owens scored 12 points and Davide Moretti had 10 for Texas Tech (27-6). As a team, Minnesota is averaging 71.2 points per game on 43.9% shooting from the field, 32.5% from behind the arc and 67.9% from the foul line this season.

SAN JOSE, Calif. - Payton Pritchard scored 19 points, Kenny Wooten protected the rim with four blocks, and 12th-seeded OR (24-12) extended its surprising March run by beating No. 5 seed Wisconsin (23-11).

President Trump Just Recognized the Golan Heights as Israeli Territory
Mr Netanyahu, whose Likud party is running slightly behind a new centrist party led by the former general Benny Gantz in polls... USA and Israeli officials said Wednesday they had not expected a decision until next week, when Netanyahu is to visit the U.S.

Minnesota is a different team right now though as they have won five of their last 7 games.

Maryland as the #6 seed faced Belmont who started the NCAA Tournament with an 11 point victory over Temple in Dayton, Ohio.

Previous year the Cavaliers were the top seed in the tournament and lost by 20 to No. 16 seed Maryland Baltimore County. "He was struggling, laboring through that second half".

And guess what? The victor would face another Big Ten opponent next week in the East Region semifinals in Washington, D.C., if sixth-seeded Maryland beats third-seeded LSU on Saturday. In his first game playing against the Gophers as a freshman, he had 22 points and 10 rebounds. If Michigan State continues to advance in the NCAA Tournament, its matchups will likely mean more big frontcourts and good matchups for Ward.

The highlight, though, came moments later on Williamsson's breathtaking dribble-behind-his-back-after-chasing-down-his-own-steal layup.

UM, the runner-up from a year ago, is coming off a tough loss to Michigan State in the Big Ten Tournament title game, but coach John Beilein put a positive spin on the showing in Chicago.
