Overall Analysis
This game should come down to the wire. i think LSU has the better talent, but Michigan State has looked like a more complete team when it comes to closing games out. They also have a coach who's been here numerous times against a coach who's only been in charge for a handful of games.

Match Up Comments
Both teams have guards who can score at will and have great vision and handles. They both have big men down low. LSU is probably the more athletic team, but Michigan State is the more experienced team. This should be a great matchup.

Comments
LSU probably has more raw talent than Michigan State, but they have proven in their first two tournament game that they lack the ability to close games out. They are also without head coach Will Wade, which is a huge disadvantage for a younger group of players. Tom Izzo will be able to out coach Tony Benford, which could be key down the stretch in a likely close game.,LSU probably has more raw talent than Michigan State, but they have proven in their first two tournament game that they lack the ability to close games out.
