The big sports weekend begins Friday night. My eyes are on:
MSU volleyball vs. San Diego in the NCAA tournament from Los Angeles. It's a toss up but the winner is big underdog to UCLA Saturday more than likely. Michigan should love in second round Friday night at Louisville.
MSU hockey 8pm Friday and 6pm Saturday in Munn against Ohio State. Should have good crowds we are told. That happens when hockey season plays games in the proper time frame for fans not players. MSU has a long ways to go in its program but this is a preview of Big Ten conference games in future years.
Pistons at Memphis Friday night. Memphis is good. Pistons should lose. Lions hosting Indianapolis at 1pm Sunday. Call me crazy but I think the Lions should win one of these home games the past three tries.
Nothing sexy about MSU vs. Nicholls State men's basketball at noon. MSU women should roast Milwaukee at 4pm Saturday. Visitors led by Sami Tucker who was a Klarissa Bell teammate at East Lansing High School.
