Moving up either way

DETROIT — Whether it's North Carolina or Michigan State on the winners platform later tonight in Ford Field, there will be movement on the all-time NCAA titles ladder.

Entering the game, the Tar Heels need one more crown to tie Indiana at five for third place on the all-time list. Michigan State, with titles in 1979 and 2000, is one of eight schools (including N.C. State) with two trophies. A win by the Spartans would move them into a three-way tie with Duke and Kansas with three titles each.

No one reading this information may be alive when a school wins enough championships to match UCLA’s 11. -- Caulton Tudor
