NEW YORK (March 30, 2014) — For Keith Appling and Adreian Payne, it will be a lifetime of “What if?”

Shabazz Napier scored 25 points, leading seventh-seeded University of Connecticut to a 60-54 win over fourth-seeded Michigan State in the NCAA Tournament East Regional Final.

The loss snaps Tom Izzo’s incredible streak of every Spartan senior class making at least one Final Four in their careers.

Payne scored 13 points and pulled down nine rebounds in his Michigan State finale.

Appling struggled in his last collegiate game, scoring just two points and fouling out in the final minute.

Gary Harris led the Spartans with 22 points, who finish the season 29-9.
