Michigan State basketball steals crucial win at Wisconsin

Wisconsin scored the first five points of the second half before MSU went on a 12-0 run to take a seven-point lead. Sophomore Jordan Poole also scored in double digits with 17 points.

The Michigan State Spartans and the Wisconsin Badgers will meet up on the college basketball court Tuesday. With two technical fouls assessed to Beilein, the Nittany Lions would hit three of four free throws to start the half before Zavier Simpson hit a trey in transition, 18 seconds into the half to nullify the free throws.

PENN STATE 75, No. 6 MI 69: In State College, Pennsylvania, Lamar Stevens scored 15 of his 26 points in the first half and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead Penn State to an upset.

The Spartans were able to neutralize the Wisconsin backcourt in the second half, preventing Brad Davison and D'Mitrik Trice from getting open looks on the perimeter.

For the most part, things have gone swimmingly for MI basketball during the 2018-19 season and until Tuesday's very bad loss at Penn State, everything seemed to be going to plan.

The game was close with 32 seconds left when Kenny Goins hit a three-pointer for the Spartans and then the Badgers were forced to foul.

The two teams traded baskets down the stretch of the first half and Wisconsin led at the break, 38-37.

Liverpool defender Matip happy to give Klopp headache
Virgil Van Dijk is suspended for the first leg against Munich and Joe Gomez recovering from a fractured leg. They were huge wins for Jurgen Klopp's side as the team was growing into the devastating force they are now.

The Badgers have been led by the play of star senior Ethan Happ, who is averaging 18.3 points, 10.5 rebounds and 4.9 assists per game this season.

Connecting on a last-second shot to end the first half, Penn State took a 40-27 lead into the locker room at the half.

Perhaps the difference in the game was at the free-throw line.

Happ's 20 points put him at 2,000 for his career as he became the fourth player in Big Ten history to record 2,000 points and 1,000 rebounds in their career.

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.

"I think our defense, holding them to 21 points in the second half, rebounds, getting back to the things that have won us games, I think was critical", Spartan Head Coach Tom Izzo said. While he is still not a willing shooter, missing both of his three-point attempts, he was able to make some big plays down the stretch.

Wisconsin: The Badgers, who had their six-game winning streak snapped on Saturday by MI, missed out on a chance to keep pace with the conference leaders.
