The Connecticut Huskies are a talented, veteran team that has been on a mission all year. They didn't cut down the nets in Phoenix after beating Missouri to earn a trip to the Final Four because they have only one goal in mind: winning a national championship. They'll need to bring that tough, mature mind-set and their composure to Ford Field on Saturday night, where the Michigan State Spartans will have the support of their hometown fans.
