Stevens Point’s Hauser scores 18, Michigan State falls in OT in Sweet 16
NEW YORK, NY. (WSAW) - Joey Hauser scored 18 points in Michigan State’s Sweet 16 game as his Spartans lost a nail-biter to Kansas State, 98-93 in overtime, to bow out of the NCAA Tournament.
Hauser was 5/11 from the field, hitting four three-pointers including a go-ahead one with 7:55 left in regularion. His brother and Boston Celtics forward Sam Hauser was in attendance, along with his parents Stephanie and Dave.
His Spartans took No. 3 Kansas State to the brink of overtime before a final possession came up empty.
Hauser also topped the 1,000 career points mark in a Michigan State uniform. He acknowledged earlier this season that this is likely his last collegiate season despite having one more year of eligibility remaining.
