Michigan State Basketball: 5 Predictions for Spartans in 2014 NCAA Tournament
Associated Press
Adreian Payne and Princess Lacey cut down the net in Indy after MSU's 69-55 B1G tourney title game win over Michigan.

Before going out on a limb (ahem) and projecting a national championship for the healthy-as-they're-going-to-get Michigan State Spartans, sticking to a short list of smaller goals should be the focus as the Tom Izzos head into the 2014 NCAA Tournament

Drilling the Michigan Wolverines, 69-55, in the Big Ten Tournament title fight was a start—a great start for a team that hadn't won back-to-back games since late January.

Michigan State proved, while running at full-tilt, that it's far from down-in-the-dumps—it just took a while to wake up and find some motivation. 

The Dance awaits, and the No. 22-ranked Spartans (26-8, 12-6 B1G) will face the Delaware Blue Hens (25-9, 14-2 Colonial) on Thursday in Spokane, Wash, the Land of Jud (Heathcote).

This slideshow will deliver a handful of predictions—short of calling for a national championship—into a neat, easy-to-follow package.
