Healthy Michigan State faces solid Virginia

Michigan State, healthy at last, faces consistent Virginia in East Regional semifinals

NEW YORK (AP) — Michigan State has been its old self the last couple of weeks or so, finally healthy and looking like the team that was No. 1 in the AP poll for three weeks early in the season.

Virginia jumped to the country’s attention when it ran away with the Atlantic Coast Conference regular-season title and backed it up with the tournament championship.

Michigan State, the team that has become the popular pick to win it all despite being a No. 4 seed, and Virginia, the forgotten No. 1 seed, meet Friday night in the East Regional semifinals.

Making the night a little more historic is that it will be the first time the NCAA tournament has been in Madison Square Garden in 53 years.
