Recap


MICHIGAN STATE 77, PENN STATE 57: Draymond Green recorded 23 points and 12 rebounds for his 13th double-double of the season as the Spartans held off a second-half surge by the Nittany Lions and improved to 15-0 at home.
 
Michigan State (19-5, 8-3 Big Ten) held Penn State (10-15, 2-10) to 21.7 percent shooting in the first half as they raced out to a 33-19 lead at the break.
 
Michigan State’s offense stalled after Green hit a 3-pointer to extend its advantage to 22 points as Penn State caught fire and scored 23 of the next 29 points to close to within 52-47 on a jumper by Jermaine Marshall with 9:18 remaining. The Spartans, though, pulled away as they limited the Nittany Lions to five points – all by Tim Frazier – over the next seven minutes as they stretched the lead back to a game-high 23 points.
