The men’s soccer team (12-4-5 overall, 4-2-2 Big Ten) advanced to the Sweet Sixteen by defeating the Oakland Golden Grizzlies (10-7-3 overall, 5-0-3 Horizon) 1-0min the second round of the NCAA tournament Sunday afternoon. This was the second time this season the Spartans played the Golden Grizzlies this season, this time avenging their 2-0 loss on Oct. 22 during the regular season.


COLUMN — Men's soccer has done more than enough to qualify for NCAA berth

As the men's soccer team (11-4-5 overall, 4-2-2 Big Ten) gets over the its tough Big Ten Tournament semifinals loss to the Maryland Terrapins on Friday, the team must think about what's to come. Neither team was able to score through 110 minutes of play on Friday sending the game to penalty kicks where MSU would lose 3-2 in a five round setup.  The team must look forward to Monday's NCAA Tournament selection show.


Self-made student section

The MSU men's soccer team has a loud and proud student section — the Red Cedar Rowdies. In three years, the group has grown from a few students to hundreds of avid fans.


Men's soccer will take on Oakland on Wednesday

As the No. 9 ranked men’s soccer team (9-2-2 overall, 3-1-1 Big Ten) prepares to take on in-state opponent the Oakland Grizzlies (6-5-1 overall, 5-0-1 Horizon) on Wednesday, the team will try to not get caught looking on to the next opponent. Sleeping on the Grizzles could cost the Spartans a late season win, and lead to a fall in the RPI.
