The Michigan State Spartans were unable to take advantage of a weaker-than-usual Big Ten Conference race and ranked as one of college basketball’s biggest disappointments. Sparty ranked 4th in the nation early on but it was quickly discovered that was a false projection. Tom Izzo can still put a good defensive team on the court, but his plodding offense was a liability that MSU could not overcome. Despite all of their problems, Michigan State held modest value most of the year. Sparty finished in the black, but it remained an underwhelming season.

The Michigan State Spartans have a proud basketball tradition that includes national championships in 1979 and 2000. In particular, head coaches Jud Heathcote, followed by Tom Izzo, have made MSU a respected national brand. Heathcote was head coach of that 1979 national title team led by the great Irvin “Magic” Johnson. The Spartans won the national championship game over an obscure opponent, the Indiana State Sycamores, led by Larry Bird. It was an omen of NBA glory to come. Heathcote is in the College Basketball Hall of Fame, and his retirement brought Tom Izzo to the fore. And Izzo has taken the Green and White to the next level.

Postseason success is a regular occurrence at Michigan State Basketball under Tom Izzo. He’s led the Spartans for nearly three decades and is responsible for a national championship and eight runs to the Final Four. Michigan State has had consistent success in the Big Ten, produced national products and future NBA weapons, and has been one of the top-level programs in the entire country.

Things have been different in recent years. The Spartans had won three straight regular season titles in the Big Ten up to the pandemic but have settled for 8th, 7th, and 4th place finishes in the three seasons since. Things started to click at the end of last season, as the Spartans advanced to the Sweet Sixteen as a 7-seed, but the totality of the last three years has been comparably disappointing. This year was no different, and now Tom Izzo is facing increased doubts.
