Spartans rout Gophers to reach Sweet 16; 1st time since '15

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Michigan State doesn't just hope to get to the Sweet 16 each year. It expects it.

The Spartans played with that attitude, and then some, rolling past Minnesota 70-50 in the second round of the NCAA Tournament on Saturday night to advance to the regional semifinals for the first time since 2015.

"I'm just excited, moreso for our program," said Xavier Tillman, who led Michigan State with 14 points. "Not being able to pass this point for three years, to kind of break the curse for us, it feels pretty good."
