PA

Michigan State No. 10 sent waves of players to its rivals and Michigan couldn’t do much about it.

Max Christie scored 14 of his 16 points in the first half and reserve Malik Hall finished with 15 points, leading the Spartans to an 83-67 victory over the Wolverines on Saturday.

“One of our main keys was really exhausting them,” Christie said.

Michigan State (16-4, 7-2 Big Ten) pulled away beating Michigan 14-3 early in the second half and had no trouble keeping a comfortable cushion.

“We’re this close to being really, really good,” coach Tom Izzo said.

The Wolverines (10-8, 4-4) started strong, leading by as much as six points in the first half. Michigan trailed by just four at halftime, but missed its first eight shots in the second half and failed to rebound at either end of the field.

“They came out the most aggressive team, the most physical team,” coach Juwan Howard said.

Michigan’s Hunter Dickinson had 14 of his 25 points in the first half. He didn’t score in the second half until he got to the line with 7:56 left and he quickly scored six points to put the Wolverines within 11 points.

Caleb Houstan and Moussa Diabate scored 11 apiece for Wolverines.

“We competed, but we didn’t compete for 40 minutes,” Howard said.

The Spartans’ bench beat Michigan 20-0 at one point early in the second half, a key factor that saw them overcome leading scorer Gabe Brown, who was held scoreless for nearly 27 minutes.

Michigan State’s Joey Hauser scored 14 points, AJ Hoggard had 11 points and a career-high 10 assists. Not counting double-digit goalscorers, four other players had at least two shots for the Spartans. Even Keon Coleman, who plays wide receiver for the Spartans, made a layup late in the game when Izzo emptied his bench.

BIG PICTURE

Michigan: It’s hard to win shooting just 37 percent, as Howard’s team discovered. Dickinson scored a lot, but he was 8 of 19 and Eli Brooks was 3 of 11 and had eight points.

The Wolverines missed 16 of 19 3-pointers.

“Some of them were good shots,” Howard said.

Michigan State: Brown, who is averaging 13 points, didn’t score until midway through the second half and it didn’t hurt the Spartans as their reserves outscored Michigan 33-6. Brown finished with nine points.

HE SAID IT

Michigan started the season ranked 6th, talking openly about their national title aspirations. Now the Wolverines need to close out the regular season strong just to earn a berth in the NCAA Tournament.

“Every game from now on is a must win for us,” Dickinson said.

REMATCH

Game 1 scheduled for Jan. 8 at Michigan was canceled because the Wolverines had an outbreak of COVID-19. Three weeks later, the postponed game is still not on the schedule.

“All I hear is going to be March,” Izzo said.

Howard said he was in.

“We’re going to play anyone, anywhere, anytime,” Howard said.

CONSEQUENCES OF THE SURVEY

Michigan State can stay at No. 10 in the AP Top 25 after beating Michigan by 16 and losing to No. 24 Illinois by one point earlier in the week.

BIG TEN RACE

Michigan State moved into first place in the Big Ten with No. 11s Wisconsin and Illinois, but Fighting Illini won later in the day to be alone atop the conference.

FANS IN THE GALLERY

Michigan State’s arena was packed and as loud as ever, giving the Spartans a boost and another problem for Michigan.

“I think that kinda messed them up a bit,” Michigan State forward Marcus Bingham said.

Even Howard was a fan of the experiment.

“I love atmospheres like this as a player and a coach,” he said.

SENIOR MOMENT

Fans chanted “Joe-y! Joe-y!” after the much maligned Hauser dived to deflect an entry pass to Dickinson. The commotion led to a jump ball with the Spartans leading 74-56 with 3:47 remaining.

“It brought tears to my eyes to hear the crowd singing Joey Hauser,” Izzo said.

Michigan: Host Nebraska on Tuesday night.

EAST LANSING, Michigan – It took a furious comeback on the road, but maybe the Minnesota Gophers’ inconsistency issues were gone when the schedule moved to 2022.

Led by a pair with just over a period to go, the Gophers made a determined comeback, scoring five unanswered goals and winning Michigan State 6-3 on Saturday for their first sweep since late October.

Despite the deficit on the scoreboard early on, the Gophers’ offense was relentless, putting a season-high 60 shots on Spartans goaltender Pierce Charleson in the win. The Spartans had 2-0, 3-1 leads that melted away, as the Gophers scored four times in five minutes at the end of the second period and the start of the third.

“We saw it coming, and we kind of knew it could happen,” Gophers coach Bob Motzko said of the offensive contributions from the four lines. “It’s still early in the second half and we continue to build confidence in our roster.”

For the second night in a row, the Gophers scored two goals from Ben Meyers, who has now scored nine times in 11 career games against the Spartans.

The victory shattered a five-game winning streak the Gophers had parted with. Equally important, the six conference points they earned this weekend put them in first place in the Big Ten. They are 12-8-0 overall and 8-4-0 in the conference with a non-conference home streak against Alaska next weekend.

The Spartans (11-10-1, 5-7-0) secured the opener when Gophers goaltender Jack LaFontaine got caught behind the net trying to play the puck, allowing Erik Middendorf to score what was essentially a goal in an empty net. In Michigan State’s first power play of the night, they doubled their lead just 11 seconds after Gophers defenseman Matt Staudacher made it to the penalty box, scoring a rebound for a two-goal lead.

The Gophers’ special teams finally responded late in the first period when Chaz Lucius scored his second goal of the weekend after a cross pass from Matthew Knies that Perbix deflected.

“It was a good test for us,” said Knies, who collected two assists in the win. “That kind of just shows the resilience of our group. We fought hard, we fought every 60 minutes, we played

a full match and that was also from every row.

The offensive assault intensified in the second period, and the Gophers still found themselves down 3-1 until less than two minutes remained in the middle frame. They fell back to less than a goal when Meyers reversed a Knies shot in front of Charleson. Seconds later, the Gophers paused when a shot from Rhett Pitlick passed the Spartans net, hit Aaron Huglen’s skate, then bounced off a Michigan State player and into the net for a 3-3 draw after 40 minutes.

“We started playing as a team early in the second half and we just knew something was going to trigger,” said Perbix. “We didn’t score right away in the second but as the half went on we had more and more chances and we knew one of them would come in. . ”

PA

Freshman Max Christie scored 21 points, a season-high, and Gabe Brown added 14 to help Michigan State’s No.10 pull away and beat Nebraska 79-67 Wednesday night for his eighth consecutive victory.

The Spartans (13-2, 4-0 Big Ten) led by just four points at halftime because they returned the ball more than 12 times. They built a bigger lead by taking better care of the basketball, finishing with 19 turnovers.

Many of Michigan State’s errors with the ball weren’t forced, including some that led to 11 turnovers in the game’s opening 10 minutes.

“No, nothing has been more confusing than some of these turnovers,” said Hall of Fame coach Tom Izzo, who is in his 27th season. “Some of them were weird.”

Michigan State scored three points early in the second half to take the 47-39 lead and that turned out to be the pivot.

“That’s all it takes for the State of Michigan in this building, they’re going to capitalize on the mistakes,” said coach Fred Hoiberg.

The Cornhuskers (6-9, 0-4) started strong, leading 17-12 and one point at the end of the first half and only allowed the Spartans to pull away at the end of the second half.

“I loved our juice early,” Hoiberg said. “We fought well all night.”

Derrick Walker of Nebraska scored 16, Bryce McGowens and Kobe Webster scored 13 each and CJ Wilcher added 10 points.

McGowens missed 9 of 15 shots, usually while Christie was guarding him.

“I’ve always been a goalscorer,” Christie said. “Defensively, I’ve come such a long way.”

Malik Hall scored 12 points and Tyson Walker had 10 points and for the Spartans, whose losses this season were to No.1 Baylor and No.6 Kansas.

PANDEMIC PLAY

The state of Michigan hosted its first game with a requirement for all spectators to provide proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of the announcement.

The new policy may have been a factor that kept some people away, as there were a lot of empty seats and some upper section rows with no fans at the Breslin Center.

BIG PICTURE

Nebraska: The program has lost 20 straight games to ranked teams, dating back to the Huskers’ victory over No.21 Maryland in the 2019 Big Ten tournament.

Michigan State: If Izzo’s team can find a way to curb their turnovers, they have a chance of winning the Big Ten and maybe making a run in the NCAA tournament.

“We’re not going to win if we keep returning the ball,” said Tyson Walker.

SIT DOWN

Michigan State senior Marcus Bingham has just four points, four rebounds and no blocks in 19 minutes. He entered the game second on the team with 11 points per game and first with three blocks and eight rebounds per game.

“If a guy doesn’t play energetically, he probably won’t play,” Izzo said. “It’s a shame because Marcus has been so good.”

HE SAID IT

Nebraska lost a five-point lead at the end of its previous game against No. 13 Ohio State before losing in overtime. The Huskers have also lost a game in four overtime this season to North Carolina State.

“I give Fred a lot of credit,” Izzo said. “They probably had three or four wins that they should have had.”

THEY MAKE STRIPES

The Spartans have won nine straight wins over Nebraska in the past six years.

FOLLOWING

Nebraska: Stay on the road to play Rutgers (8-5, 2-1) on Saturday afternoon.

Michigan State: Plays rival Michigan (7-6, 1-2) on the road Saturday afternoon.

“Which of you won’t return the ball?” Izzo asked reporters. “You are going to start. “

PA

Gabe Brown scored a career-high 24 points, as the Michigan State’s No 10 shorthanded second half moved away in the second half to beat High Point 81-68 in Wednesday’s game between the coaching friends longtime Tom Izzo and Tubby Smith.

Michigan State (11-2, 2-0 Big Ten) was without four players, including starters Marcus Bingham Jr. and Max Christie, who tested positive for COVID-19 earlier this week.

“Mentally, I was in my own head, because of the missed shots,” Brown said. “When I got to that stretch, my teammates found me, and I believed in myself, and I just reversed the shots.”

The team captain started 2 for 10 from the floor but finished 7 for 17, including three of his six 3-pointers in three minutes after High Point tied him at 56-56 with 9:05 to go .

“When he knocks down shots, looking for his shot, that’s when we’re at our best,” said Joey Houser, who had a high 17 points to play with 11 rebounds for the Spartans. , who shot 65% in the second half.

Jaden House collected 11 of his 18 points in the first half for High Point (6-7), but John-Michael Wright was limited to 10 points, less than half his average.

“If he shoots like he’s able to, we’re in the game until the end,” Smith said. “I’m a believer. I think our players believe it. But you know… when they kick in, you’ve got to do the same.

BIG PICTURE

Highlight: The Panthers have played games all season, with competitive losses to Notre Dame and UNC Wilmington, and after a 30-point win over Chowan on November 27, their next six games were decided by 22 points overall . They led to the 12-minute mark for the second half on Wednesday, and tied him 56-56 with 8:58 remaining.

Michigan State: Unranked at the start of the season, MSU was not going to let COVID absences knock them out of the top 10, extending their winning streak to seven in a row since the Nov. 26 loss to No.1 Baylor.

FOLLOWING

Highlight: The Panthers face the Kentucky No.19 on Friday at Rupp Arena, where Smith will be honored in a pre-game ceremony, becoming the fourth coach to have his jersey rolled up to the rafters. Smith led the Wildcats to 262 wins and 10 NCAA tournament appearances in 10 seasons from 1997 to 2007, including the 1998 National Championship.

Michigan State: Izzo expects the Spartans to be at full strength when they return to the Big Ten on Sunday with a visit to Northwestern, where the Wildcats then beat No. 4 MSU, 79-65, last December to put end to a 12-game losing streak in the series.

IN CASE YOU MISS IT

Five essential readings before kick-off:

* Mel Tucker has a few more dollars in his pocket and Michigan State is hoping he will coach him for a long time. Tucker signed a new 10-year, $ 95 million contract on Wednesday to make him the second-highest-paid college football coach behind Alabama’s Nick Saban.

* Michigan state’s injury woes have piled up: they could do without their top two wide receivers, left tackle and more on Saturday. Kenneth Walker III is also attacked. Coaches are looking to a multitude of reserves to step up and help end the season strong.

* Tucker took a rare moment to meet his team’s outward expectations this week after the team’s 49-point loss to Ohio State. He pointed out that while the Spartans have already far surpassed what others expected of them (their upper / lower win tally was four), they also weren’t “playing with house money.”

* How much Walker is available, how the Michigan State pass defense is reacting and how many fans are in the stands are among the five things to watch for Matt Wenzel on Saturday.

* Connor Heyward is among the Michigan State players entering the field for Seniors Day on Saturday, and he has one of the most interesting stories ever: A player who entered the transfer portal was retired, changed positions and became an NFL prospect.
