Michigan State, Michigan Both Featured On Sports Illustrated Cover
By Ashley Dunkak
With the college basketball season underway, Sports Illustrated revealed its regional covers of this week’s college basketball preview issue, and one of the four features Michigan’s Glenn Robinson III and Michigan State’s Gary Harris.
Sports Illustrated predicts the season to end with the Spartans joining Duke, Kentucky and Louisville in the Final Four. SI picks the Wildcats and Cardinals to advance to the championship and Louisville to win it all.
In its national rankings, the magazine places the Spartans third and the Wolverines seventh. The teams face off Saturday, Jan. 25, in East Lansing and Sunday, Feb. 23, in Ann Arbor.
No. 2 Michigan State got its first resume-boosting win of the season Tuesday night against a young but supremely talented Kentucky team that was ranked No. 1.
