And then there was one: Michigan State, the sole survivor from last year’s Final Four teams still alive in the NCAA tournament. The fifth-seeded Spartans (25-8) play No. 4 seed Maryland (24-8) in the second round of the Midwest Regional

today in Spokane. Michigan State made a spirited run to the 2009 Final Four in Detroit before losing the title game to the Tar Heels.

Washington University won its fifth Division III women’s title since 1998 with a 65-59 victory over Hope College yesterday. Carrie Snikkers led The Flying Dutch (32-2) with 22 points and Philana Greene added 18.

Henrik Zetterberg scored as the overtime buzzer sounded to lift the Detroit Red Wings to a dramatic 4-3 victory over the Vancouver Canucks last night. Zetterberg peeled out of the corner around defenseman Christian Ehrhoff, who had lost his stick, and into the slot before lifting a backhand over the left shoulder of Roberto Luongo as time ran out.

Louie Caporusso scored both goals to lift Michigan to a 2-1 win over Northern Michigan in the Central Collegiate Hockey Association championship game last night at Joe Louis Arena. The win gives Michigan, which gets the CCHA’s automatic bid, its 20th consecutive NCAA Tournament appearance. It’s the longest such current streak in the country.
