In March 2017, Michigan State won its first NCAA Tournament game in nearly 40 years, beating Oregon State 77-62.
But for the men’s team, the win was a little bittersweet.
The Spartans went on to lose to Oregon State again in a rematch, and their record remained in the bottom third of the Big Ten for much of the season.
The men’s teams success in the first four games of the tournament was a testament to the strength of the program and its commitment to excellence.
But now, the Spartans have one of the worst records in the Big 10.
And the men aren’t going to win a game until April 5th against No. 13 Ohio State.
