Grand Rapids Press:

Matt Steigenga won't pretend to hide his excitement over Michigan State's Final Four appearance, even under the veil of a radio analyst. "I love what I do when I'm calling a game and I enjoy it so much, but I'm so wrapped into it," the Grand Rapids native Steigenga said with a laugh. "If you look at the lower portion of the television screen, you'll see that's me jumping up and down at a big shot."
