Michigan State will participate in the 57th annual Great Lakes Invitational this week, and is in search of its 13th all-time title. This will be MSU’s 47th tournament after becoming a mainstay in 1979. MSU is 49-41-4 all-time in the GLI, which includes 12 titles (its most recent in 2009). MSU and Michigan Tech are tied for second-most GLI victories all-time, with Michigan (59) holding the record. MSU takes on Ferris State in the semifinals on Thursday, the second straight season the Spartans and Bulldogs meet in the first round.
