COLUMBUS, Ohio (WILX) - Tom Izzo now holds another record with the most NCAA Tournament wins over a higher seed.

His 7-seeded Spartans’ 69-60 win over Marquette propelled his team to the Sweet Sixteen, where his team will take on #3 Kansas State.

Both teams got into foul trouble early, but Mady Sissoko, who played with four fouls late, played some stellar defense down the stretch.

Tyson Walker led the Spartans with 23 points, and Joey Hauser helped his current team over his former team with ten rebounds.

The Spartans take on the Wildcats at 6:30 P.M. on Thursday; that game will air on TBS.
