Coach K Not Surprised By Michigan State's Run, "They Don't Have A Team, They Have A Program Of Excellence"

Based on seeding, Michigan State's run to the Final Four is pretty surprising. The Spartans, the No. 7 seed in the East Region, defeated No. 10 Georgia, No. 2 Virginia, No. 3 Oklahoma and No. 4 Louisville on their way to Indianapolis. 

But few are actually shocked that MSU has a place in the Final Four alongside Kentucky, Wisconsin and Duke. 

Why? Because this is what Tom Izzo does. The 60-year-old coach has now reached the Final Four for the seventh time in his career leading the Spartans' program.

That's a pretty great quote.

Michigan State and Duke are set to square off in the Final Four on Saturday. The game will tip off at 6:09 p.m. E.T. and will be televised on TBS.
