#AskCoachB: Spartans have all the pieces

November, 11, 2013
Want to ask ESPN RecruitingNation national recruiting director Paul Biancardi a question about basketball recruiting? Tweet it to @PaulBiancardi using the hashtag #AskCoachB.

This year you can easily make a case for at least a dozen or so teams to be in the final four and to win a National Championship, as so much talent is spread out this season with so many exciting freshmen.

With all the talk about how great the freshmen class is this year, it will be a team with experience that wins national title this season.

With that said, I am going with Michigan State, as head coach Tom Izzo has been to six final fours, which is remarkable in itself. His team has all the pieces, and at the key positions he has two seniors who keep improving, producing and should be all-Big Ten in PG Keith Appling and C Adreian Payne. Add to that a couple of athletic stars in Gary Harris and Brandon Dawson, plus the coaching of a future hall of fame coach in Izzo.

Before Michigan State wins it all they will be playing a loaded and big Arizona team in the championship game.
