The Michigan State Spartans upset the 4th ranked Kentucky Wildcats last night in a double-overtime thriller and you can color Dan Patrick impressed. They lost to top-ranked Gonzaga by only one point earlier in the season in another strong performance. Plus, HC Tom Izzo is always tough to face come March regardless of the talent he may have on his squad. It may be early, but Sparty looks like they’ll be a strong dark horse once the Madness begins.
Dan Patrick: “I’m just going to remember this that they went toe-to-toe with Gonzaga, and they beat Kentucky. No matter how good they are at the end of the year, you have to file that away. And when it comes to coaching, Tom Izzo is on the short list of coaches you don’t want to face come March Madness.”
