Michigan State may have been a team counted out, but head coach Tom Izzo had other plans for his Spartans squad. Izzo, who has quite a postseason resume, knows the recipe for success and has showcased that as the Spartans defeated No. 10 Georgia and delivered upsets to No. 2 Virginia, No. 3 Oklahoma and No. 4 Louisville in overtime to move on to the Final Four.

MSU will take on No. 1 Duke.

Duke came into the tournament looking for redemption from last year’s early dismissal. After receiving a selection committee bid, the Blue Devils have knocked off No. 16 Robert Morris, No. 8 San Diego State, No. 5 Utah and No. 2 Gonzaga. And with the win it will be the Blue Devils first Final Four since 2010.
