Michigan State is trying to avoid becoming the first No. 1 seed to lose to a 16-seed in the NCAA Tournament in their game against LIU-Brooklyn Friday night. If there's any day it's going to happen, it would be the same one when two 15-seeds, a 13-seed and an 11-seed all win, so the Spartans must be prepared. To be prepared, the floor must be dry, and head coach Tom Izzo made sure of that.
No slip-ups in that spot, no siree-bob. Izzo's makin' damn sure of that. Don't want to become another statistic today, no sir.
