EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The national champion Michigan State basketball team will be honored Wednesday during two celebrations and a parade.

The first celebration will be held at noon on the front steps of the state Capitol, with Gov. John Engler - a Michigan State alumnus - and other officials congratulating the team and coach Tom Izzo.

A second celebration will be held about 2:30 p.m. at Spartan Stadium. It is scheduled to include video highlights of the season and remarks from Izzo and the players.

In between the two events, a "Parade of Champions" is planned down Michigan Avenue.
