Michigan State 67, Wisconsin 59

Michigan State scored the next seven for a 44-43 edge.

And on Tuesday night, his mid-range jumper was on point.

Penn State took the lead at 10-7 and never looked back, upsetting number-seven MI 75-69 at the Bryce Jordan Center.

Senior forward Kenny Goins - playing with a massive brace on his left elbow after a fall Saturday afternoon - made the back-breaking three with 0:36 left, and No. 11 Michigan State survived a tough road night against No. 20 Wisconsin, 67-59. Wisconsin was then forced to foul, and Brad Davison finally broke the Badgers' scoreless streak making a 3-pointer with 10 seconds left.

What'd we learn from the Spartans' gritty win at Wisconsin?

Izzo said it wasn't just Winston's effort on the offensive end that was key Tuesday, saying his point guard's ability to lock down shooters on the outside ensure the Spartans didn't have to stretch their defense, which would have helped open up the inside. D'Mitrik Trice is also contributing 13.2 points per game for the team. The Terps (19-6, 10-4), picked seventh in the league in the preseason, could be in first or second place if they win the first of their two meetings with the Wolverines over the next two weeks.

Of course, we will find out soon enough if the Wolverines can do it but if they can't figure out how to play winning basketball on the road these next two weeks, they won't win the Big Ten. With the score tied at 53, Winston buried a deep 3 over Happ, who answered with another jump hook. A game that had been frenetic and fast-paced in the first half slowed down considerably in the second half, taking on the tempo and personality more befitting of the Badgers than the Spartans.

The Badgers couldn't seem to get anything to go their way early on, shooting just 8-for-22 from the field and 2-for-7 from three to go with four turnovers in the game's first 12 minutes.

The back-and-forth played out from there as Wisconsin went to Happ on almost every possession. "We felt we were in position to win the whole time".

MADISON, WISCONSIN - FEBRUARY 12: Nick Ward #44 of the Michigan State Spartans dunks the ball in the first half against the Wisconsin Badgers at the Kohl Center on February 12, 2019 in Madison, Wisconsin. He also missed all six free throw attempts he took, including two with the Badgers down 59-56 and 1:28 left. Wisconsin shot 1 of 8 from the free-throw line in the second half, a deciding factor in the loss.

"You watch any other games [in the Big Ten], they're coming down to the last 2-3 minutes", Gard said. Michigan's Hallie Thome needs 15 points against IN on Thursday night to become the fourth Big Ten player this season to reach 2,000 IN her career.
