Michigan State, the No. 2 seed in the East Region, is 32-6 this season. Texas Tech, the No. 3 seed in the West, is 30-6.

The Michigan State vs Texas Tech winner faces the winner of the Auburn Tigers vs. the Virginia Cavaliers in the NCAA tournament national championship game on Monday.

It has been nearly two decades since Mateen Cleaves and the rest of the Flintstones carried Michigan State to the national championship, triumphing over Florida at the long-since demolished RCA Dome in downtown Indianapolis.

The Spartans are back at the Final Four this weekend, their seventh attempt at giving coach Tom Izzo a validating championship ring.

But even if they’re unable to end their league’s maddening drought at the glitzy new U.S. Bank Stadium on Monday night, the team that does emerge be it Virginia, Auburn or Texas Tech will have a coach that followed the Big Ten blueprint.

Texas Tech vs Michigan State Prediction

The rest he learned from Davis, who took the Hawkeyes to the Elite Eight with Pearl on his staff. Those were the teams of B.J.

Armstrong and Roy Marble seven players from that season would reach the NBA, a then-unheard-of number that speaks volumes of the Big Ten’s decade of dominance.

That guy for Texas Tech coach Chris Beard was Bob Knight, the irascible but nonetheless brilliant coach who guided Indiana to three national championships.

Beard hooked up with him when Knight was hired to rebuild the Red Raiders, but the lessons he learned were steeped in Big Ten blood.

The similarities between Texas Tech and Michigan State — who meet in the second semifinal Saturday night — are so extensive that they might as well watch scouting film of themselves.

“To be a Final Four team, you usually have to have those kinds of qualities of togetherness and toughness, both mental and physical,” Izzo said. “But if we could carry the mantle for our league and end that drought, I’d be double excited, one for Michigan State and one for the Big Ten.”
