NCAA Tournament: Matchup analysis, game prediction for MSU-Marquette from LSJ’s Graham Couch

Michigan State basketball will be playing for a trip to the Sweet 16 on Sunday.

The Spartans knocked off USC on Friday to advance to the second round of the NCAA Tournament. Waiting for the Spartans is No. 2 seed Marquette, who made easy work of No. 15 seed Vermont in their first round matchup.

Michigan State last reached the Sweet 16 in 2019, and has only reached the second weekend of the tournament one time in their last seven appearances. Can the Spartans break that streak and reach the Sweet 16 with a victory over the Golden Eagles? Click on the tweet below to read the game preview from Couch, including his matchup analysis and final score prediction.
