Has University of Michigan State ever won any NCAA basketball tournaments before?

Michigan State University has won championships in 1979 (final featured Magic Johnson vs arry Bird & was highest rated college basketball game in TV history) & 2001. In addition to setting the record for tournament losses in a single year, (6 in 1992 && 6 in 1993) The University of Michigan did win a championship in 1989. One of these championships could have easily been cited incorrectly as University of Michigan State University. When I went to the 2005 final four in saint Louis to cheer for MSU, the score board initally read "MICHIGAN" instead of Michigan state. Horrified Spartan fans (we revile U-M with every bone in our bodies) boo'd till the idiots corrected the slight. I've also been told of a high profile prospect (I think it was Magic Johnson) who taunted U-M by declaring themselves to "The University of Michigan.... State". Now THAT'S the stuff of legend!
