No. 9 seed MSU Women’s Basketball traveled all the way to Columbia, South Carolina to play the No. 8 seed Arizona State University. Making it into this year’s NCAA Tournament is the eighth time in nine season that the Spartans have been selected for the postseason play.
On March 13, teams across the country waited for their names to appear in a bracket slot on ESPN. After going 9-7 during Big Ten conference play and wrapping up the regular season 21-11, MSU women’s basketball waited to be selected for the NCAA Tournament.

This season senior Tori Jankoska has been completely in the spotlight, leading the Spartans on the court, breaking records while preparing to leave a legacy behind. From fighting for her life at birth to fighting on the court as a Spartan, Jankoska has had a rollercoaster ride worth of experiences, but right now it seems she at the top and not coming down any time soon.
In the last home game of the season MSU women’s basketball faced Penn State University in the Breslin Center.
