Spartans Pull Out Huge OT Win
The Spartans finished regulation on a 9-0 run, then outlasted No. 20 Wisconsin in overtime for a 64 – 61 victory Tuesday night. Draymond Green scored a career-high 26 points for Michigan State, and Lucas made three free throws in the final minute of overtime in what might be the game that turns his team’s season around. The Spartans were ranked No. 2 in the preseason poll but dropped out of the Top 25 entirely after a loss to Penn State last weekend. This is the first week Michigan State (11-5, 3-1 Big Ten) isn’t ranked since the final poll of 2006-07.
