Michigan State faces UConn on Sunday seeking its seventh Final Four berth in 16 seasons.

The fourth-seeded Spartans' seniors are looking to keep alive a streak. Since coach Tom Izzo took over in 1995, every player he recruited who stayed four years has reached a Final Four.

The seventh-seeded Huskies' seniors won a national title as freshman, but UConn was barred from last year's NCAA tournament because of academic sanctions.

The Huskies expect their fans to make Madison Square Garden sound like a home game in the East Regional final.

Michigan State is peaking at the right time after injuries ravaged the roster during Big Ten play.
