In a stunning upset, 15-seed Middle Tennessee State defeated second-seeded Michigan State on Friday. Twitter, as always, reacted.
The Spartans are going home, the Blue Raiders are headed to face Syracuse, and Tom Izzo’s team will sit out the second weekend of the tournament for the first time since 2011. It’s a monumental result. Many thought the Spartans should be a one-seed. Instead, they are done.
Catch up on the Blue Raiders later—you’ll see them on Sunday.
But here’s how Twitter reacted. As usual, it got interesting.
