#13 Michigan State 49, Wisconsin 47
Keith Appling scored 19 points and Branden Dawson added 18 while grabbing 13 rebounds to lead Michigan State to a 49-47 victory over Wisconsin in a defensive struggle Tuesday night.
“They don’t turn it over. I don’t care who they’re playing,” said Izzo, whose team finished with 10 turnovers, one more than Wisconsin. “So we said we have to play like them in that respect. We wanted to run, but we wanted to be solid with the ball, and I think we did a good of that.” (Michigan State Official Athletic Site)
