WOMEN'S BASKETBALL

MSU women's basketball prepares for University of North Carolina in first round of March Madness

After missing the tournament for two straight years, the Spartans turned things around in head coach Robyn Fralick's first season with the team. Michigan State spent a lot of extra time during the preseason and throughout the regular season working on its craft, hoping that it would get them to the “final chapter,” as Fralick calls it. Now, the Spartans packed their bags and are headed out to Columbia, South Carolina in preparation to face off against No. 8 seed University of North Carolina.
