Spartans & St. Patrick's Day

By  | 

For the fourth time in 50 years, the MSU men will play in the NCAA tournament on St. Patrick's Day.

Area bars are prepping for an already busy bar day plus tip off 12 hours into it and it's the start of the weekend as well.

Area police don't have anything out of the ordinary planned, but the tournament will be the true test of the new guidelines put in place to handle out of control crowds.
