Only with Herculean effort can Tom Izzo's Spartans defeat tough Tar Heels

It is possible. With a little prayer and pixie dust, Michigan State could beat UNC tonight. But the depressed look on Tom Izzo's face Thursday night spoke volumes. He had been watching the Tar Heels pummel Eastern Kentucky. "You got any answers as to how I can beat Magic's Lakers?" he asked. "They're all NBA players. How do you handle that speed? You see the wingspan on that Wright kid? I'd have to have one of my guys piggyback on the shoulders of another guy to match it." (Detroit Free Press)
