If there’s anything we know from March, it’s that a game is never over, and that was definitely the case in this one. Michigan State seemed to have put this one away about three separate times in the second half, but Georgia refused to be silenced. They battled back from 10 point deficits three times in today’s game but were never able to even the score as Michigan State went on to win a game that was much closer than the score indicates, 70-63.
Even the best Hollywood movie screenwriter couldn’t have written a more perfect ending for Michigan State on Saturday.
Tied at 56-56 with No. 22 Ohio State, Denzel Valentine – yes, really – hit the game-winning 3-pointer with 3.2 seconds left in regulation to lift the Spartans to a key win on – yes, really – Valentine’s Day.
