When Matt Costello’s and-one cut the lead to two early in the second half, MTSU scored six points in the span of 47 seconds to make the lead eight. Bryn Forbes responded with a 3. Then Potts hit now of his own.Costello cut it to 65-64 with a layup. Then Harris hit an and-one. Colby Wallenman made two free throws to bring it to 77-76, then Perrin Buford hit an and-one layup. Every sniff at a run or any hope of momentum was always dashed by a Blue Raiders basket.“In my wildest dreams I didn’t think they’d hit some of the shots they hit,” MSU head coach Tom Izzo said in a tear-filled press conference. “We didn’t guard them real good. But, man, they made some shots. Boy, really take my hat off to the shots they made.”After the game, players in the MTSU locker room spoke with large throngs of reporters. A lot of them looked as their phones started blowing up. Some, like Jaqawn Raymond stood with an ear-to-ear, smile on his face.“We know it’s a big win. We know nobody think we was gonna win this game,” Raymond said. “I’m pretty sure there’s some brackets that’s not gonna win no money … We got our jobs done.”For the Spartans, the locker room was quiet. In the press room, Izzo cried. He shot back at a reporter who asked about what the game meant for the future, saying he refused to look past today. Denzel Valentine lamented MTSU’s changing defense — everything from a 1-3-1 to 2-3 zone to man-to-man.The loss pits Michigan State with Duke and Missouri from 2012, both No. 2 seeds that lost in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. But Michigan State was arguably the best team in the country. It had been snubbed of a No. 1 seed. It had Valentine, the consensus best player in the country. And suddenly, it was all over.Margaret Lin | Senior Staff Photographer“I will never forget this day,” Michigan State’s Marvin Clark said. “I just can’t let this happen again.”The Blue Raiders will spend all of Friday night relaxing and celebrating. Then at 6 a.m. on Saturday, they’ll meet and go over tape. Assistant coach Win Case already spent the week watching Syracuse tape, he’s seen six of its games.They were readying for a game that only they thought was possible. On Friday morning, Middle Tennessee State was just another 15 seed. Now, it’s a Cinderella story. It’s the winner of one of the greatest upsets in college basketball history.“We weren’t scared of the moment,” Buford said.

Just 6.6 seconds were on the clock — a fraction of a game that was already in Middle Tennessee’s grasp.The Blue Raiders cheering section, The Blue Zoo, was small but loud, synchronizing in one continuous roar. This was a moment that seemed possible as soon as MTSU jumped out to a 15-2 lead, but wasn’t a certified reality until it actually was.“We played our ass off today, man,” Giddy Potts said.15th-seeded MTSU (25-9, 13-5 Conference USA) shocked second-seeded Michigan State (29-6, 13-5 Big Ten) and the college basketball world with its 90-81 win on Friday afternoon at the Scottrade Center. Every Spartan run was met with an MTSU answer.All five of MTSU’s starters scored in double figures. They combined to make 11 3s, take 21 free throws and never let the Spartans take a lead or score more than eight consecutive points. The Blue Raiders will now face Syracuse on Sunday afternoon. The Orange defeated Dayton in the first round earlier on Friday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“It’s so much national attention,” head coach Kermit Davis said. “And on CBS, on a Friday afternoon, and when you beat a team like that … And to do it on that kind of stage, it’s a great day for our whole university.”MORE COVERAGE: Time Machine: 15th-seeded Richmond upsets 2nd-seeded Syracuse, 73-69Syracuse puts 2014 NCAA Tournament loss to Dayton in past with 70-51 win over FlyersFast Reaction: 3 quick takeaways after Syracuse’s 70-51 blowout of DaytonTyler Roberson falls 1 rebound short of Syracuse’s NCAA Tournament record in win over DaytonGallery: Syracuse beats Dayton in Round of 64 NCAA Tournament matchup Related Stories Gallery: Syracuse beats Dayton in Round of 64 NCAA Tournament matchupDayton collapses under pressure of Syracuse’s early second-half runFast Reaction: 3 quick takeaways after Syracuse’s 70-51 blowout of DaytonSyracuse dominates Dayton center Steve McElvene in the paintTime Machine: 15th-seeded Richmond upsets 2nd-seeded Syracuse, 73-69 Facebook Twitter Google+
Alexandre Lacazette needed his team-mates’ support to bounce back from his goal drought, said Mikel Arteta as the striker grabbed the winner in Arsenal’s Europa League win away to Olympiakos.He went nine games without a goal before scoring against Newcastle on Sunday, and on Thursday gave Arsenal the upper hand in their last-32 tie.“That confidence and support came from me and his team-mates,” said Arteta.“The way they reacted when he scored, that was a lift.”The Spanish manager added: “That’s not just a coincidence. It’s something that happens because the energy of the team is putting energy into him as well.”Arteta was critical of his side’s defensive display, stating that errors could have cost his side.“We should have started better than we did in the first half,” he said.“Defensively we made one or two mistakes positionally that could cost us in difficult situations, and then with the ball we gave a lot of simple balls away.”The return leg is at Emirates Stadium on Thursday, 27 February.

Solid half-centuries from Andre McCarthy and season debutant Brandon King highlighted the first day of the fourth-round WICB/Digicel First-Class Championship clash between Jamaica Scorpions and Trinidad and Tobago Red Force at Sabina Park yesterday. McCarthy, who recently returned from Sri Lanka with the West Indies ‘A’ team, scored a patient top-score of 82, while the attacking King, a former West Indies Under-19 representative, hit a boundary-filled 78, as the Scorpions, winning the toss and electing to bat, posted an improved 314 in their first innings. The Red Force, in their response, closed on 35 for two at the close of play. Heading into the match with scores of 36, two, one, one and 22, and one of several Scorpion batsmen who have been struggling to make their mark, the 29-year-old McCarthy struck five fours and six sixes off 137 balls. King, in the meantime, has been a consistent performer in local competitions but has also been struggling to make the first team. Yesterday, he found his best form and slammed 10 fours and three sixes off a mere 87 balls. The pair also put on a stand of 139 runs for the fourth wicket, the highest of the innings. The second highest was that of the second wicket between McCarthy and number three batter Jermaine Blackwood, who made 34. They put on 61 for the second wicket. The other specialist batsmen, openers John Campbell and Shacaya Thomas, made 33 and 11, respectively, while wicketkeeper Devon Thomas, batting at number six, got seven. The Red Force were led in the field by promising all-rounder Roshon Primus, who, bowling seamers, claimed three wickets for 32 runs off nine overs. He was supported by Jamaica-born left-arm fast bowler Sheldon Cottrell, and another West Indies returnee, part-time off-spinner Jason Mohammed, who picked up two wickets each. The Red Force, in their turn at bat, and after facing 5.2 overs, were then jolted in late afternoon by leg-spinner Damion Jacobs, who, after 1.2 overs has figures of two for seven. Emerging West Indies batsman Kyle Hope will resume today on 15 when play starts at 10 a.m. SCOREBOARD SCORPIONS 1st Innings J. Campbell c Hope b Primus 33 S. Thomas c wk Katwaroo b Primus 11 J.
