EPIC DEBATE BATTLE DAY FOR CLINTON-TRUMP: WATCH LIVE CBS COVERAGE| LISTEN LIVE ON WWJ  

LIU-Michigan St. Preview 3-16-12

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – They have three players from San Antonio, two from Canada, two from Maryland and a guard from Massachusetts whose basketball roots will stay forever green.

“Celtics all the way,” Michael Culpo said.

But make no mistake, the LIU Brooklyn Blackbirds are a New York team, a melting pot of talent with the city’s street smarts and swagger to back it up.

Michigan State doesn’t scare them.

“We have kids from everywhere,” LIU coach Jim Ferry said Friday. “They fit right in in New York. They respect everybody, but they don’t necessarily fear anybody. That’s the approach of a New York person. They think we’re rough around the edges. We’re not. We’re like everybody else. But the things we experience and our approach to things, we’ve got to have respect for these guys, no question about it.
