INDIANAPOLIS — For much of the game, the No. 2-seeded MSU women's basketball team was in position to suffer an upset at the hands of its biggest rival.
It was Senior Night, but it seemed like every Spartan had their moment.
On Sunday night, the No. 19 women's basketball team clinched a share of the 2014 Big Ten championship with a decisive 76-56 victory over Indiana.
Raulie Casteel, the MSU alumnus convicted of the I-96 shootings, was sentenced to 18 to 40 years in prison on Monday at the Livingston County Circuit Courthouse.
Convicted I-96 shooter Raulie Casteel was sentenced to 16-40 years for terrorism and 2.5-4 years for felony assault Monday afternoon in Livingston County District Court.
Casteel, 44, went on a shooting spree along the I-96 corridor, shooting at motorists across several different counties. In February, the MSU alumnus was sentenced to 6.5 to 10 years in prison in Oakland County for multiple assault and weapons charges after accepting a plea deal.
Although Casteel's mental state often was the subject during his trial proceedings, the diminished capacity plea to lessen charges based on mental illness was eliminated in Michigan in 2012.
Casteel was found to have delusional disorder following a court-ordered independent evaluation.
