March Madness and destiny are synonymous, so maybe it's no surprise that three Michigan State commits will take center stage at the Breslin Center for the climax of this years boys' basketball season beginning Thursday.
Brandan Kearney, Matt Costello and Denzel Valentine will all Sparty on in due time, and that's not even including Michigan's Mr. Basketball winner Dwaun Anderson, whose Sutton's Bay team was eliminated from the Class C playoffs, but reached East Lansing last season.
We'll have all the coverage of the games beginning Thursday with the Class C semifinals beginning at 1 p.m., but to preface things, here's a look at the prospects to keep an eye out if you're watching from the internet or on TV, or planning on attending the games.
