EAST REGION FINAL NEW YORK

[4] MICHIGAN STATE (29-8) VS. [7] UCONN (29-8)

1:10 p.m. • Ch. 4

The skinny: DeAndre Daniels was the difference for Connecticut against Iowa State on Friday with 19 of his 27 points in the second half. But the key is guard Shabazz Napier, who got the Huskies off to a fast start. Michigan State coach Tom Izzo has never had a team with fourth-year seniors who have never been to the Final Four. Virginia gave the Spartans a 40-minute push on Friday. Branden Dawson is at the top of his game, recording 26 points against Harvard and 24 points and 10 rebounds vs. the Cavaliers.
