Behind Enemy Lines: How Michigan State is viewing match-up with UNC Basketball

North Carolina took care of business against Wagner in their opening round game of the 2024 NCAA Tournament, using a big second half to get past the Seahawks. But now the test gets tougher.

The Tar Heels are set to take on Michigan State in Charlotte with a trip to the Sweet 16 on the line and it’s a No. 9-seeded Spartans team that is better than where they are slotted. Michigan State is 16th in the NET rankings and had a bit of an up-and-down season in the Big Ten. But they are very good and can defend which could make life difficult for the Tar Heels.

UNC is going to have to bring their A-game if they want to punch their ticket to Los Angeles and the next round.

To get you ready for the game, we talked to Andrew Brewster of Spartans Wire to get the latest on Michigan State.
