The start of the NCAA tournament journey is just around the corner for both the Michigan State and Michigan basketball teams.
News 10 was in Des Moines, Iowa all day for practices and interviews with both of the teams.
The Spartans and Wolverines both 2 seeds in the tournament.
The Spartans play earlier Thursday and they face off against the Missouri Valley Conference Champions, the Bradley Braves.
Bradley is just a 15 seed but MSU will not take the Braves lightly after their shocking loss to middle Tennessee State three years ago.
Michigan took down Montana last season in the first round when Montana was a 14 seed, this season they are a 15 seed after winning the Big Sky Conference again.
Michigan will try to regain some march magic from last year, when they fell in the National Championship game to Villanova.
Michigan State and Bradley tipping off at 2:45pm.
Michigan tipping off at 9:20pm.
