Is this the win Michigan State needed to turn their season around? They picked up a huge 64-61 nailbiting overtime win over Wisconsin on Tuesday night.
Wisconsin was 34-1 when holding a lead with under 4:00 to play. With 2:39 to go Wisconsin held a 51-43 advantage. They turned the ball over three times in the final minute which led to the Spartans tying the game at 53 and forcing overtime.
The Spartans Draymond Green is still shooting a lot of jump shots, but tonight he got to the rim more often. He scored the first eight Michigan State points in overtime. He finished the game with 26 points.
Michigan State guard Kalin Lucas started slow and dealt with foul trouble, but he made some key plays down the stretch. He was aggressive as he slashed to either get to the tin, or dish it off to an open jump shot. He had 17 points and six assists, but was just 4-for-17 from the field.
Michigan State forward Delvon Roe did a great job on Wisconsin’s leading scorer Jon Leuer had just 10 points on 3-of-9 shooting.
Wisconsin center Keaton Nankavil did all he could. He scored 17 points, knocking down five of his six three point attempts.
Player of the Game- Draymond Green
Unsung Hero- Delvon Roe
Andrew Jones’ putback with .7 left gave the Nittany Lions the win.
Illinois better start hitting the glass if they want to be successful in the NCAA Tournament. They were out-rebound by Penn State 33-27.
Talor Battle is quickly becoming this year’s version on Maryland great Greiviz Vasquez; a player who can let it fly from anywhere on the court. And make them!
With the shot clock running down midway through the second half for Penn State, Battle stood at the top of the Penn State decal basketball in hand. He set his feet, launched, and split the strings! Bryce Jordan Center exploded!
Battle had 26 points on the night, 4-for-9 from three.
