Led by the enormous smile and clutch play of point guard Mateen Cleaves – a Flint, Mich., native – the Michigan State Spartans won the NCAA championship that 2000. The victory capped the most decorated basketball career in Michigan State history for Cleaves before moving on to the NBA, where he played seven seasons.
