Michigan State's Chris Allen (3), a Meadowcreek grad, tries to steal the ball from Tennessee's Scotty Hopson, right, during the second half of the NCAA Midwest Regional championship game Sunday in St. Louis.
ST. LOUIS (AP) - Raymar Morgan made a free throw with less than
two seconds left to give Michigan State a 70-69 victory over
Tennessee on Sunday and send the Spartans back to the Final Four
for a second straight year.
J.P. Prince had one last chance for sixth-seeded Tennessee, but
he fumbled the ball at halfcourt and his long shot at the buzzer
never came close.
Durrell Summers had 21 points to lead the fifth-seeded Spartans,
who are on their way to their sixth Final Four in 12 years, best of
any school in the country. Morgan and Draymond Green each had 13 to
help make up for the absence of injured star Kalin Lucas.
Wayne Chism, in his final game for Tennessee, scored 13. Prince,
also a senior, had 12.
