WISCONSIN 60, MICHIGAN STATE 58 | RECAP | BOX | PLAY-BY-PLAY
(AP) Traevon Jackson hit a pull-up jumper with 2.1 seconds left for Wisconsin, 10 seconds after Michigan State’s Adreian Payne tied it with a 3, and the Badgers beat the ninth-ranked Spartans 60-58 on Sunday. The Badgers (19-5, 6-5 Big Ten) committed 14 turnovers, six more than their NCAA-leading 8.3 per game, but gutted out a win over the Spartans (20-4, 9-2). A desperation 3 by Michigan State from midcourt banged off the rim as time expired.

ILLINOIS 60, PENN STATE 55 | RECAP | BOX | PLAY-BY-PLAY
(AP) Kendrick Nunn scored 11 of his 19 points in the second half and Illinois halted its eight-game losing streak with a 60-55 victory over Penn State on Sunday. Nunn, averaging 4.1 points per game, was 7 for 13 from the field and made four 3-pointers for Illinois (14-10, 3-8 Big Ten). Malcolm Hill added 11 and Rayvonte Rice nine for the Illini.

Please stop showing Aggie lowlights. Izzo and his underperforming team are suffering enough. Word out of Least Ansing is that a mandatory “shooting clinic” was held upon teams arrival. Gary Harris is still working on all aspects of shooting, including free throws. Izzo is wearing his PF Flyers and calls have been made to alumni to help “right the ship”. NCAA seed is slowly dropping with each loss.
