Merriman: Ranking Big Ten's McDonald's All-Americans

The 37th annual McDonald’s High School All-American game is set to take place tonight at 9:30 p.m. ET at the United Center.

The McDonald’s All-American game is known as being the most prestigious high school all-star game around, bringing together the top prep players in the nation for one night of exciting hoops action. There is a long list of former Big Ten standouts who have participated in this

Dienhart: Ranking B1G Final Four teams since 2000

Since Michigan State cut down the nets as a No. 1 seed in the now demolished RCA Dome in Indianapolis in 2000 to win the national championship over No. 6 seed Florida, nine Big Ten teams have been to the Final Four—but none have won it all even though five have played for all the marbles. Wisconsin is the 10th to make it, trying to end the Big Ten’s 14-year drought. The No. 2 seeded Badgers will take on No. 8 Kentucky in a national semifinal game on Saturday. Here’s a ranking at the Big Ten’s Final Four squads since

Merriman: Remember Appling's career for all he did right

Upset. Frustrated. Disappointed. Those are some tough words to describe a 22-year-old kid. That’s exactly what Keith Appling was when he committed to play basketball for Tom Izzo back in August 2008. A tough, gritty kid from inner-city Detroit, Appling came to Michigan State because he wanted to play in a Final Four – an experience that every four-year player under Tom Izzo had experienced until this season. Appling arrived in East Lansing with monumental expectations. A McDonald’s All-American, the guard gave MSU fans a taste of what was to come in the 2009 Michigan High School Basketball Championship game,

Dienhart: Unfinished business for Michigan State

And just like that, Michigan State’s season is over. Finished. Kaput. It wasn’t supposed to be like this. But, in some ways, this seems like a fitting end to season that forever will be marked by what-ifs. It was the season of unfinished business. Go back to Selection Sunday. Way back then, the Spartans were the darlings of the day, the pick of many to advance to the Final Four—and some thought Michigan State would win it all despite a No. 4 seeding that everyone on the planet thought was too low.

UConn upsets Michigan State, 60-54, in Elite Eight

(AP) Shabazz Napier scored 17 of his 25 points in the second half, and UConn beat Michigan State 60-54 to return to the Final Four a year after the Huskies were barred from the NCAA tournament. Napier hit three huge free throws with 37.6 seconds left in the East Regional final at Madison Square Garden to carry UConn to the Final Four just as Kemba Walker did in Napier’s freshman year. The Huskies (30-8) rallied from a nine-point second-half deficit to become the first No. 7 seed to reach the Final Four since the tournament expanded to 64 teams in

Photo: John Harbaugh dons Michigan State hat

John Harbaugh’s brother, Jim, is a former Michigan quarterback, and his brother in-law, Tom Crean, is the Indiana basketball coach. So, when the CBS cameras caught the Baltimore Raves head coach wearing a Michigan State hat during the team’s Elite Eight game Sunday afternoon, it had people talking. John seemed to be enjoying himself, too. He was seated directly to the right of Magic Johnson, after all. The next family gathering should be interesting, huh? Speaking of the Harbaughs, in recent years, Jim has visited the Hoosiers, whether it be to offer a helping hand on the bench or to

Twitter: Are Michigan, MSU fans rooting for rival?

It’s no secret Michigan and Michigan State are fierce rivals. Sometimes, however, conference pride and a chance to make rare history can supersede a rivalry. Consider this: If Michigan and Michigan State both win today, the Big Ten will be the first conference to put three teams in the Final Four since the Big East did it in 1985. So, are Wolverine and Spartan fans willing to root for their rivals for conference pride? I asked on Twitter. Yes! Let's decide it in the final!

Dienhart: Big guys lead Spartans to big win

Thank goodness for Michigan State big men Adreian Payne and Branden Dawson. Without that dynamic duo, Michigan State would have been sent packing tonight. But the Spartan tandem led the way in an emotional 61-59 win vs. No. 1 Virginia that advances Michigan State to the Elite Eight to play No. 7 UConn with a spot in the Final Four on the line.
