Tom Izzo is trying to take his time as he weighs the pros and cons of leaving to coach the Cavaliers or staying at Michigan State. He indicated on Sunday that he's still undecided. "Still gathering," Izzo wrote in a text message to the Associated Press. The Cavaliers have been wooing Izzo for at least a week to coach their team — and perhaps LeBron James , who can become a free agent. Izzo, who spent several hours in Cleveland with team officials last week, has said the situation wouldn't go on forever.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh spent his Sunday afternoon at Madison Square Garden , taking in the Elite Eight matchup between Michigan State and Connecticut . The Huskies eventually won, 60-54. That wasn't necessarily surprising as Harbaugh is a big college basketball fan. What was a surprise -- at least to one member of his sports family -- was the team he was seemingly supporting. Harbaugh, seated next to Ravens assistant head coach and special teams coordinator Jerry Rosburg , was wearing a Michigan State hat and watched the game from a section that included former Spartans standouts Magic Johnson and Mateen Cleaves . Harbaugh was shown several times by the CBS cameras during the game.

Cornell up to challenge Shannon Ryan Chicago Tribune In 1979, an Ivy League team made it to the Sweet 16 - and kept going to the Final Four. Cornell has several factors working in its favor that show it can imitate that Penn team. Cornell, a No. 12 seed, has already taken out fifth-seeded Temple by 13 points and fourth-seeded Wisconsin by 18 points. Next on the list is a giant challenge in top-seeded Kentucky. Good thing the Big Red have giants. The front line has three players at least 6-7, including 7-footer Jeff Foote, to help contend with Kentucky's dominant post players.

ATLANTA - Casting a long national shadow, they have become the visitor targeted by every opponent in their league. When they lose on a foreign floor, a wild celebration ensues. Michigan State? Sure, but the Gonzaga Bulldogs fill that description too. The Spartans, the defending NCAA champions, are in search of their third straight Final Four. The Bulldogs, their opponent tonight in the Sweet 16 at the Georgia Dome, reached a regional final two years ago, and the third round last season.

Unhappy with the leadership on his team, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo benched junior guard Kalin Lucas at Tuesday's practice. Izzo told Lucas, the 2008-09 Big Ten Player of the Year, he should spend the time thinking about his leadership role for the No. 11 Spartans. Lucas, averaging 15.7 points for the 9-3 Spartans, is not suspended. But his status for Wednesday's game against Texas-Arlington - and beyond - is uncertain. Izzo said his concerns with Lucas do not involve academics or legal issues.

Everyone who predicted the Big Ten would be stronger this season was right. They just had some of the teams wrong. Four of the six Big Ten teams in last week's Associated Press Top 25 suffered staggering losses to unranked teams. Three of them let one loss add up to two. Michigan (No. 15 last week) was stunned in consecutive losses to Marquette and Alabama in the Old Spice Classic. Minnesota (No. 22) dropped games to Portland and Texas A&M in the 76 Classic. Illinois (No. 20)

In a locker room in Detroit last April, Michigan State coach Tom Izzo searched for the right words, struggling to console a disappointed group of athletes and convey his pride in their effort despite a lopsided loss to North Carolina in the national championship game. That's when a freshman spoke up. Draymond Green, a chatterbox who at the time logged more words per minute than minutes per game, predicted the Spartans' future and eased some heartache. "It was him who said that big statement about, 'You know, a year ago North Carolina was getting beat by 40 at Kansas and now they're national champs,' " Izzo recalled Green telling the team.

When did Michigan State's Morris Peterson become The Man? Ask his family and they'll tell the story of a 5-year-old Peterson who believed he was already a man until he had to lead his family into their darkened house one day. He cried and begged not to be a grown-up yet, but a lifelong nickname stuck: Man. Ask Peterson and he'll recall the time two months ago, when Peterson had a Chinese symbol emblazoned on his chest. It was a tattoo signifying "Man," a permanent reminder of how a former role player turned into this season's Big Ten Player of the Year.
