The Spartans headed in to the 2013 NCAA Tournament at the #3 seed of the Midwest region for their 26th tournament appearance. Historically Michigan State has been able to produce an overall tournament record of 54-25 giving their fans plenty of reason to cheer in 2013 and look to return that atmosphere to East Lansing in 2014. With the last Spartan championship coming up on a 14 year hiatus the Big Ten powerhouse should have plenty of reason to post another deep run in the NCAA Tournament.
