Syracuse just went from the First Four to the Sweet 16. Led by 17 points from Tyus Battle, the Orange upset No. 3 seed Michigan State 55-53. The Spartans missed their last 13 shots, and scored just five points (all free throws) over the last 5:41.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Michigan State's Matt McQuaid took what had been a rock fight with Syracuse and at least gave it a sensational ending going into halftime. When his shot was blocked in the closing seconds, McQuaid recovered the ball and drained a banked-in 3 as the horn sounded. MSU leads the Orange 25-22.
