The fans at BOK Center will be treated to a game between the Michigan State Spartans and the Kansas Jayhawks when they take their seats on Sunday.

ABOUT MICHIGAN STATE (20-14): It’s been a building process for the young Spartans and Izzo told reporters he hopes their performance Friday will lead to more: “Do they have a benchmark now to say ‘Hey we did this, we did that?’ I think the answer was, yes. I can’t think of anybody who didn’t play well.” Freshman swingman Miles Bridges (team-high marks of 16.7 points, 8.3 rebounds) and freshman forward Nick Ward (13.9, 6.6) combined for 37 points and 16 boards in the win over Miami. Joshua Langford also scored 13, while fellow freshman guard Cassius Winston had seven points and five assists Friday.

ABOUT KANSAS (29-4): Second-leading scorer Josh Jackson showed no rust after returning from a one-game team suspension for off-court issues, as the freshman scored 17 on 8-of-12 shooting with seven rebounds Friday. Mason leads the team overall (20.8 points, 5.2 assists), while Jackson (16.4 points, 7.2 boards) and junior guard Devonte’ Graham (13.2 points) are the other double-figure scorers for the productive Jayhawks’ offense. Senior forward Landen Lucas produced his second straight double-double with 13 points and 11 rebounds in the opening round, while 6-8 junior Sviatoslav Mykhailiuk (9.8 points) scored 16 against UC Davis.

Oddsmakers currently have the Jayhawks listed as 8-point favorites versus the Spartans, while the game’s total is sitting at 148.

Two of the most successful programs in college basketball meet Sunday when top-seeded Kansas takes on No. 9 seed Michigan State in the second round of the Midwest Regional in Tulsa, Okla. Kansas can reach the Sweet 16 for the 30th time in its history after rolling past UC Davis 100-62 in the first round, while the freshman-heavy Spartans produced one of their best efforts of the season in a 78-58 win over Miami (Fla.) on Friday.

Michigan State, hampered by injuries much of the season, shot 56.6 percent from the field and rallied from an early double-digit deficit to give itself a chance at a 20th trip to the Sweet Sixteen and fifth in six years. “The only thing I’m happy about is I get to work another night. … And I wanted a shot at Kansas,” Spartans coach Tom Izzo, who is 47-18 in the NCAA Tournament, told reporters. The Jayhawks washed away the memory of a disappointing performance in a loss to TCU at the Big 12 quarterfinals by getting back to basics on the defensive end of the floor Friday. “We locked in as a team. We talked about it up to (Friday) that we have to guard like it’s the last possession in a tie game. We did a good job of defending,” Kansas senior guard Frank Mason III told reporters.

In their last action, Kansas was a 100-62 winner at home against Aggies. They covered the -22.5-point spread as favorites.

Michigan State was a 78-58 winner in their most recent outing on the road against Hurricanes. They covered the +1.5-point spread as underdogs.
