Okay, so my Spartans came up a bit short against UNC in last night’s NCAA Round two game. But they gave us a thrill, leaving everything they had on the court and allowing even the most doubting fan to believe that the seemingly impossible might just happen afterall. What a thrill ride!
Like most Spartan fans today, I couldn’t be prouder of this team. They showed guts and resiliency, tons of class, and a never-give-up attitude, a tribute to their terrific coaching. The best news for Spartan fans this morning is the realization that all that tremendous talent, plus some new blood, is coming back.
Last night, this group of exceptional young men gave the nation a preview of coming attractions. The Spartans served notice–they will be back. And while MSU may have ultimately been beaten by a deeper bench and some remarkable athletic talent, in no way is this team a loser.
If there’s one thing I love it’s seeing a perceived underdog rise above the tough odds, silence the naysayers and create some magic. That’s just what this team did in 2006/07. Unfortunately, this Cinderella story ended too soon
But just wait until next year….
Congratulations to Coach Izzo and the men’s MSU Spartan Basketball Team! Thanks for another great season!
