MSU basketball moves up in latest update of ESPN bracketology

The Spartans have moved up in ESPN’s latest bracketology released on Friday.

Michigan State picked up a less-than-impressive victory over Minnesota on Thursday night to improve to 11-7 overall and 3-4 in Big Ten play this year. While the win wasn’t anything special, it did helped boost the Spartans from a No. 9 seed to a No. 8 seed in Joe Lunardi’s updated NCAA Tournament bracket projection.

In Lunardi’s most recent update, the Spartans face a No. 9 seed in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. Should they win that figurative matchup, the Spartans would most likely play No. 1 seed Kansas in the second round.

Six Big Ten teams were listed in Lunardi’s updated bracket projection. Check out the complete bracket by clicking on the tweet below:
