MSU basketball listed as No. 1 seed, playing in Detroit-based regional in latest ESPN ‘Bracketology’ update
The latest bracketology update from Joe Lunardi of ESPN would be a dream for Michigan State basketball.
Lunardi still has the Spartans as a No. 1 seed in his updated bracket projection for the 2023-24 NCAA Tournament that was released last week. But the notable update from his original bracket that came out in April is that he now has the Spartans in the Midwest Region — which will be hosted in Detroit this year. So should the Spartans make it past the first weekend, they’d be playing right down the road for a trip to the Final Four.
Lunardi has a total of nine Big Ten teams in his updated bracket projection — which is the most of any conference.
