EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) _ Former Michigan State basketball coach Forrest ``Forddy'' Anderson, who led the Spartans to the Final Four in 1957, has died.

His son, Forrest Anderson Jr., said Anderson died Monday in Oklahoma City from complications of pneumonia, the Lansing State Journal reported today. Anderson was 80.

Anderson coached from 1954-65. He had a 125-124 record that included a tie for the Big Ten title in 1956-57 and an outright championship in 1958-59. He was fired in 1965 after a 5-18 season and a last-place finish in the conference.

Anderson also is survived by daughters Connie Swets, Barb Anderson and Tracey Bookout.

The O'Brien-Eggebeen-Gerst Chapel in Grand Rapids is in charge of arrangements.
