Losing at home Northwestern definitely will hurt your NCAA Tournament stock so it’s no surprise to see the Spartans drop in the latest batch of Bracketology from ESPN’s Joe Lunardi.
Lunardi released an updated bracket projection on Tuesday, which has the Spartans as a No. 4 seed in the East region. Michigan State is slated to play No. 13 seed Ohio in the projected first-round matchup.
Michigan State was as high as a No. 2 seed just a few weeks ago, but lackluster play over the past few games has resulted in the Spartans sliding.
