It’s March Madness time! First of all, congratulations to the MSU Women’s Basketball Team on their Big Ten Championship and a #4 seed in the NCAA Tournament! The Spartans, who appear in the tournament for the third straight season and for the eighth time in the last nine seasons, will face No. 13 seed Northern Iowa on Sunday, March 20 at 4:30 p.m. PT in Wichita, Kansas.
Secondly, the Men’s Basketball team has secured a #10 seed in the NCAA Tournament, playing UCLA Thursday, March 17 at 6:20 p.m. PT. Since everybody will be decked out in green already for St. Patrick’s Day, seems like a perfect opportunity to get together and cheer the Spartans to victory! This is MSU’s 14th straight appearance in the NCAA Tournament, marking the third longest active streak in the nation. Go Green!
The bar is sure to be crowded with other teams watching games, since it’s the first day of the tournament. The Republic is open for the Madness starting at noon so get out there early and enjoy the hoops! If you can’t make it out to the Marina, post a comment on the Facebook event page or here on the website to let other Spartans know where you are gathering.
