EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -Michigan State leads the nation with five Final Four appearances since 1999.
The Spartans, though, have won only one national championship during their decade of excellence. Coach Tom Izzo said Wednesday that fact pushes him every day.
Izzo says he is motivated to follow up the magical run the Spartans had to the Final Four in Detroit, where they were routed by North Carolina in the championship game. He wants to win another title to put the basketball program in the elite company of schools with at least three.
The Spartans seem to have a shot this season with Kalin Lucas and Raymar Morgan leading a team that returns seven of its top nine scorers.
