Michigan State Spartans History
Over the years, the Spartans
have developed into one of the prominent members of the Big 10, one of the top conferences in the country and a group of teams
that routinely boasts some of the brightest stars in the country. Though there have been many great seasons, it really all
came together for the Spartans in 1979, as Michigan State came out of one of the most well-known games in college basketball
history as the National Champions. Led by Magic Johnson the Spartans took on Larry Bird's Indiana State team for the championship
game. The friendly rivalry that began between those two superstars on that day would continue in the NBA as Johnson played
for the Lakers and Bird for the Celtics and they would again battle each other for championships as professionals. Recently,
the Spartans have also had some great seasons, running their Final Four appearance total to eight and giving them their 12th
different appearance at the Elite Eight level in the Tournament. Put it all together and the Spartans have an amazing tradition
to go along with a powerhouse current program, which tells you everything you need to know about why there always seems to
be quite a bit of fanfare around East Lansing.
Michigan State Spartans Trivia
Did you know that Magic
Johnson originally intended to be a broadcaster instead of a pro basketball player?
Though he obviously had some serious
talent before coming to Michigan State University, Johnson was much more focused on his academic career at the outset, particularly
with his desire to pursue a career as a broadcast journalist. Things changed quite a bit in his freshman year, when he put
together one of the best freshman seasons in Big 10 history and led the team to a 25-5 record on the season – making
him an instant legend who would go on to become one of the greatest basketball players of all-time.
