Canada's Brissett scores 15, Syracuse upsets Michigan State

USA TODAY Sports Images

In low-scoring games, the Orange beat Arizona State in Dayton and TCU in the first round.

Michigan State opened up tournament play on Friday with an opening round 82-78 victory over Bucknell.

"Nooo", Dolezaj said. "But he does". He made both free throws, and the ball returned to Syracuse with 7 seconds on the clock.

How can I listen to the Michigan State-Syracuse basketball game on the radio?

Michigan State is one of the strongest, as measured by anyone with two eyes.

The Spartans dominated the boards and have muscled the Orange big men Chukwa and Sidibe into three personal fouls each. Syracuse brings just two players off the bench, barely. "But they are legit".

Do you remember the last time Syracuse played against a coach with at least 500 wins in the NCAA Tournament?

Cassius Winston led them with 15 points and six assists. Starting center Nick Ward is 6-foot-8 and 250 pounds. Catch the MSU game on CBS or live streaming online.

Michigan State may have a rough offseason because it will likely lose Bridges and freshman Jaren Jackson to the National Basketball Association draft and the school's crisis on campus isn't going away anytime soon.

Michigan State will use up to 10 players in its rotation, and that could prove especially important inside.

Many of the Spartans own a body-type that Syracuse has struggled with at times in recent years, a size reminiscent of North Caroliona's Kennedy Meeks and Isaiah Hicks.

Michigan State will try to use its depth and size advantage while attempting to solve Syracuse's 2-3 zone.

Obviously the most impressive part about all of this is that he was virtually jumping in the air when he threw this up, but it's all great. "And I think he's even better off the court". Michigan State is one most well-rounded teams in the NCAA Tournament as the Spartans rank 36th in scoring offense, 23rd in scoring defense, 1st in defensive FG%, and 1st in rebound margin.

Michigan State leads the country in shot-blocking percentage and are fifth in the country in offensive rebounding percentage.

Cincinnati 68, Georgia State 53: Jarron Cumberland set career highs of 27 points and 11 rebounds as Cincinnati recovered after blowing a 10-point lead in the second half at Nashville, Tenn.

Auburn 62, College of Charleston 58: Jared Harper made a clutch 3-pointer with 1:17 to go - his only basket of the game - and Auburn held off No. 13 College of Charleston. It's something we have to get physically and mentally ready for.

The Spartans will be the latest, and perhaps the toughest, test. "If they push us, we push them back".
