The Spartans have won two national championships – in 1979 and 2000. Saturday’s game between the Bulldogs and Spartans should play tight throughout, as not much seperates both clubs. Butler has won 24 games in a row behind stifling defense that relies on forcing their opponents into bad shots. Michigan State is clearly more athletic than the Bulldogs and demolish foes on the boards by outrebounding it’s opponents by an average of 35.2 to 25.9 per game. However, Butler outrebounded Kansas State by 12 in it’s Elite 8 matchup and is capable of holding it’s own on the glass. A key factor in the game could be turnovers. The Spartans turn it over 13.8 times per game, a figure they’ve brought down during the tournament. Butler is forcing 15.8 turnovers per game during the tourney. NSAwins.com’s expert handicapper Lou Panelli thinks this game will play UNDER the total of 126 with both teams having trouble substaining any kind of offensive rhythm against each other’s outstanding defense.
