Michigan State University officials hope to discourage “destructive” celebrations during next week’s final four basketball games.
Ten people were arrested Sunday after the MSU Spartans won their quarterfinal game in the NCAA men’s basketball tournament.
Jason Cody is an MSU spokesman. He bristles at the suggestion post big game rowdiness is a school tradition.
He says the university is pushing a message to get more students to celebrate responsibly.
“Don’t do anything that’s illegal,” Cody says is the message to students, “Don’t put yourself in that situation.”
Michigan State plays Duke on Saturday in a national semi-final game.
