This has not been the ideal March for MSU sports fans. After three consecutive Final Fours, you thought the mens basketball team could pull it together and make another run at a title, but they bowed out in the first round. Then, the Spartan hockey team followed suit with a disappointing 2-0 loss to Colorado College in the NCAA Tournament ending the career of legendary coach Ron Mason. Then the womens basketball team created some excitement on campus, advancing deep into the 2002 Womens National Invitation Tournament.
The Spartans home opener treated fans to the baseball teams first shutout of the season.MSU (15-3) defeated Siena Heights (4-19) 6-0 at Kobs Field on Wednesday afternoon.Our team is definitely really confident, theres no question about that, Spartan manager Ted Mahan said.
With a keen eye and a swift bat, Bob Malek has made a name for himself on the baseball field.The junior right fielder raised eyebrows last season when he set MSUs single-season hits record at 88 and boasted a .427 average at the plate.For the two-time All-American, winning is what matters most.I just want to win, Malek said.
