Dienhart: Spartans met B1G tourney goal ... and then some

INDIANAPOLIS—If Tom Izzo had written a script for his Michigan State team in the Big Ten Tournament, he couldn’t have come up with a better scenario. The Spartans were a team possessed in Indianapolis the last three days. This was a driven collection of players—and an even more driven coach–which was on a mission: Get on track for the NCAA tournament. That goal was met … and then some. Sunday’s rousing 69-55 victory over Michigan in the Big Ten tourney title game was the emphatic exclamation point the Spartans needed after an often-dreary regular season that saw MSU go 12-6

Video: Spartans soar for big dunks in Big Ten tourney final

Michigan State cruised past rival Big Ten regular-season champ Michigan, 69-55, Sunday to claim the 2014 Big Ten tourney. On the way to the team’s second Big Ten tourney final in the last three seasons and its fourth overall, the Spartans compiled several impressive highlights. None were better than Gary Harris crossover and powerful dunk before halftime and Branden Dawson’s fastbreak flush. Watch both plays in this post. VIDEO: The crossover! The emphatic flush!

Dienhart: Linebacker U needs help at linebacker

The lid is being taken off the James Franklin era. And it’s an exciting time. He brings energy and enthusiasm—not to mention a strong resume that saw him win 24 games in three seasons at Vanderbilt—to State College. There is plenty of talent to work with-headed by quarterback Christian Hackenberg–but the program continues to deal with repercussions from the Jerry Sandusky scandal. Departed Bill O’Brien was able to forge two winning seasons. What can Franklin do? Some critical questions must begin to be answered this spring, when only 53 scholarship players will be on hand with 75 projected for the

B1G Tourney final: Michigan vs. Michigan State

This will be the first time that Michigan and Michigan State will meet in the Big Ten tourney. And, it seems fitting that the initial encounter between these rivals should take place in the title game. It’s No. 1 Michigan vs. No. 3 Michigan State on Sunday. Michigan is aiming for its first Big Ten tourney title since winning the inaugural event in 1998. That’s only time the Wolverines have been in the final. Michigan State won this event the last time it was in Indianapolis in 2012. The Spartans also won in 1999 and 2000. The Wolverines won both

Dienhart: Welcome back, Michigan State

INDIANAPOLIS–I’d like to be one of the first to welcome back Michigan State. I have missed the Spartans. The Big Ten tourney has been Michigan State’s chance to trumpet its return from what largely was a moribund regular season that saw the Spartans go 12-6 in Big Ten play. That’s good by some school’s standards. But not for MSU. The postseason is the second season, a do-over. And the Spartans are taking advantage. First, they blasted No. 11 seed Northwestern on Friday, 67-51. But Michigan State was even more impressive Saturday in dispatching No. 2 seed Wisconsin, 83-75. “I think
