State News Top Stories - March 28, 2015 - 4:48pm

Syracuse, N.Y. -- MSU head coach Tom Izzo will square off against a Pitino-led team for the second time this year, but with a Final Four berth at stake, this one will mean a bit more.

The Spartans dropped a home game to Minnesota and head coach Richard Pitino in February, and on Sunday at 2:20 p.m., MSU will face Richard’s father and Naismith Memorial Hall of Fame member Rick Pitino.

Pitino’s Louisville Cardinals (27-8 overall, 12-6 ACC) have surged in the tournament, despite the dismissal of guard Chris Jones in late February.

The Cardinals escaped in their first tournament game with a two point win over UC Irvine.
