The end of Michigan State’s Big Ten tournament run may be its loudest statement moving into the NCAA tournament. The Spartans scored 89 points in Saturday’s semifinal — and still lost by 11 to No. 4-ranked Maryland — but producing that total in their third game in three days was impressive. Only one team all season scored more than that against the Terps (and it wasn’t flawless Connecticut, which topped out at 87 in its win over Maryland.)
