Michigan State Basketball: Kyle Ahrens’ tough season likely ends early

Iowa Routed by Michigan 74-53 in Big Ten Tournament Quarterfinals

The Spartans did so with Josh Langford suffering a season-ending stress injury to his left ankle in December while forward Nick Ward missed the final five games of the regular season with a broken left hand before returning in the Big Ten tournament.

Winston scored 21 points and Goins had 13 points and 12 rebounds, helping No. 6 Michigan State beat No. 19 Wisconsin 67-55 in the Big Ten Tournament semifinals on Saturday.

Ultimately, the run ended with a loss in the national championship game to Villanova, but after a 28-6 record, MI basketball seems to have all the ingredients for another deep run, although knocking off teams like Texas Tech, Gonzaga or even Florida State won't be easy. They jumped out to an early 17-point lead and the Badgers would get no closer than six the rest of the way. No other program has won the tournament as many times as Michigan State, and this one was particularly sweet.

After Murphy scored in the paint to end the drought for Minnesota, Jon Teske buried a 3 for MI that hit the flat part of the back of the rim.

Both teams were awarded No. 2 seeds in the NCAA Tournament and will play Thursday in Des Moines, Iowa. Kind of like Michigan State did on February 24 in Ann Arbor.

After last year's disaster of revealing teams alphabetically, we were back to getting the bracket by region (as it should be), starting with the East, headlined by top overall seed Duke, who will face the victor of the NC Central-North Dakota State First Four game on Tuesday.

"We could never overcome the start and couldn't get back after they got hot at the beginning", coach Greg Gard said. Beilein knows how good a team has to be to reach that point. Third-seeded MI hit seven threes in the half, while Iowa made zero. Poole then appeared to get bumped by Winston - Michigan State had a foul to give - as he launched a long 3 off the dribble, but there was no call.

He clutched his lower left leg as he screamed in pain. The family, and Michigan State, received great news: the x-rays were negative. CBS sideline reporter Tracy Wolfson said Ahrens might even return to the bench on crutches in the second half.
