Relive one of the greatest moments in Michigan State basketball history with this ceramic 11oz mug depicting this play:

1979 National Championship
First championship
Michigan State vs Indiana State
75 - 64
24 March, 1979
On this play Magic gets the dunk and draws the foul. Undefeated Indiana State lost against Michigan State when the Sycamores' Larry Bird, who hit 53.2 percent of his field-goal attempts on the season, made just one-third of his shots from the floor (7 of 21) as a sore thumb limited his shooting effectiveness. Magic Johnson scored a game-high 24 points for the Spartans. The ballyhooed matchup between Bird and Magic aroused fans and generated the largest ever TV share for an NCAA final. On March 26, 1979, Earvin ?Magic? Johnson leads the Michigan State Spartans to a 75- 64 victory over Larry Bird?s Indiana State Sycamores in the NCAA men?s basketball championship game. The most watched college finale of its time, the game established Magic vs. Bird as a rivalry for the ages, and would catapult both players to NBA superstardom.
