INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -Michigan State is marching on to Motown.
The Spartans gave the Final Four a hometown feel, stopping overall No. 1 seed Louisville 64-52 Sunday to win the Midwest Regional.
Goran Suton had 19 points and 10 rebounds as the second-seeded Spartans (30-6) reached their fifth Final Four in 11 years - the most trips of any team in the nation during that span.
Only 90 miles from their campus, the Spartans will play Connecticut on Saturday at Ford Field in Detroit. A crowd of 72,000, the largest ever for college basketball's signature event, is expected for each game.
``Detroit, here we come,'' said coach Tom Izzo, a Michigan native. ``I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to that.''
The Spartans made it 30 years after Magic Johnson led them to a national title over Larry Bird and Indiana State.
the Final Four - Louisville (31-6) was trying to become the third school from the power-packed conference to make it.
The Cardinals scored 103 points in overwhelming Arizona in the regional semifinal, but barely reached half that total against a rugged, defensive-minded squad. Earl Clark scored 19 points, but coach Rick Pitino's team played without the precision or passion it had Friday night.
Louisville lost for the first time in 14 games. It was the second straight year they were eliminated from the NCAA tournament in the regional final.
