Spartan seniors get their first Final Four

By  | 

EAST LANSING (WILX) -- There was a point when every four-year player under Tom Izzo had played in a Final Four.

That streak unfortunately ended a few years ago.

But a new one may have started last night.

Matt McQuaid and Kenny Goins will both be playing in their first Final Four after the Spartans beat Duke.

Coach Tom Izzo talked about what that means to him after the game saying, "This one was special because we have been through a lot. We haven't been there in awhile and it was McQuaid's turn. He didn't want to be in that group with the seniors that didn't make it. And uh and it was Duke."
