   The Spartans (23-10) trailed by 16 in the first half, went on a big run early in the second and took control in the closing minutes. Tom Izzo's team will try to make it two straight titles and three in four years when it takes on No. 6 Wisconsin on Sunday. The Badgers knocked off Purdue 71-51 in the other semifinal.
