The Spartans needed three wins in a row to be crowned Big Ten Tournament champions for the first time in school history.

They only got one.

Michigan State beat Minnesota 6-3 in their first game Saturday, but couldn't get it done in the title game.

Illinois got to Spartan pitching early and often, scoring 5 runs in the first 3 innings and 9 for the entire game.

The Illini won the Big Ten Tournament title and clinched a spot in the NCAA Tournament. Meanwhile the Spartans and Big Ten Coach of the Year Jake Boss Jr. are likely done for the year.
