Carolina's speed will test MSU

Michigan State coach Tom Izzo tried to downplay his team's physical play inside by saying UNC big man Tyler Hansbrough is more of a banger than all of his Spartans combined. Tar Heels coach Roy Williams wasn't buying it. ''You could say he's Lou Holtz,'' Williams said, referring to the way the old Notre Dame football coach used to downplay his team's strengths. ''I tell you, it's scary watching [Michigan State] play. You guys will see it.'' (Chicago Sun-Times)
