(EAST LANSING) - Michigan State extended its Big Ten record by earning a bid to the NCAA Tournament for the 21st consecutive season, receiving a No. 3 seed in the Midwest Region. The Big Ten Champion Spartans (29-4) will face No. 14 seed Bucknell (25-9) in the first round on Friday, March 16 at 7:10 PM in Detroit at Little Caesars Arena. Michigan State's streak of 21 straight NCAA Tournaments is not only the longest in Big Ten history, it's also the fourth longest in NCAA history (Kansas, 29; North Carolina, 28; Duke, 23). In addition, MSU's streak is the third-longest active streak in the nation (Kansas, 29; Duke, 23). Bucknell won both the Patriot League regular season and tournament championship. The Bison won the regular-season title by four games with a 16-2 league record, and went on to win the tournament championship with wins over Loyola, Boston and Colgate. Bucknell enters the NCAA Tournament with an eight-game winning streak. Friday's game will mark the second-ever meeting between Michigan State and Bucknell. The Spartans defeated the Bison, 64-52, on Nov. 21, 2003, in East Lansing.
