Lucious hits a buzzer beater to down Maryland and push the Spartans into the Sweet Sixteen.

3 April, 2000
Michigan State senior Mateen Cleaves limped his way to the Most Outstanding Player (MOP) of the 2000 NCAA Tournament. Cleaves sprained his ankle with 16:18 to play in the 2nd half, and this was after Florida had trimmed Michigan State's double digit halftime lead to 50-44. Cleaves returned about four minutes later, and immediately helped lead the Spartans on a 16-6 run to put the game out of reach. The lone top-seed remaining would bring order to a tournament filled with upsets as they salted away the victory for the school's second National Championship (1979). Michigan State coach Tom Izzo earned his first title, from his second straight final four appearance. Morris Peterson led the Spartans with 21 points.
2005 West Regional Final
The OT Putback
Michigan State vs Kentucky
94 - 88
27 March, 2005
Davis gets the putback
1979 National Championship
The first time
Michigan State vs Indiana State
75 - 64
24 March, 1979
On this play Magic gets the dunk and draws the foul. Undefeated Indiana State lost against Michigan State when the Sycamores' Larry Bird, who hit 53.2 percent of his field-goal attempts on the season, made just one-third of his shots from the floor (7 of 21) as a sore thumb limited his shooting effectiveness. Magic Johnson scored a game-high 24 points for the Spartans. The ballyhooed matchup between Bird and Magic aroused fans and generated the largest ever TV share for an NCAA final. On March 26, 1979, Earvin ?Magic? Johnson leads the Michigan State Spartans to a 75- 64 victory over Larry Bird?s Indiana State Sycamores in the NCAA men?s basketball championship game. The most watched college finale of its time, the game established Magic vs. Bird as a rivalry for the ages, and would catapult both players to NBA superstardom.
One of the coasters has a strange stain across it while a second also carries a stain and the print is already wearing away. Other two look great. So, two out of four stars, I suppose.
Unfortunately the product has taken some time. A label was created 7 days prior to the post office receiving the product according to the USPS tracker. If I would have know it would have been shipped via USPS, I probably wouldn’t have ordered. Still have not received. Looking forward to seeing the product though!!
I ordered the coasters for my son’s Christmas stocking. They are good quality slate and the fact that they have each of the game winning plays from the Braves championship run make it even more special.
Been a die hard Kings fan for 38 years and this ad stumbled across my Instagram page and can be more happy to see these coasters!
