Early on, it seemed as though Michigan State was going to make it look easy.
Ward's teammates agreed they didn't do a good job of getting him the ball. The Spartans had no answer. "We went on a run in the first half and carried it into the second", Bates-Diop said.
Biggest disappointment: Northwestern. The season is threatening to go off the rails just a year after that Cinderella run to the program's first NCAA tourney. "But we've given the coach a good reason to trust us, so we're going to continue to learn to not let it happen again".
MSU coach Tom Izzo after the No. 1 Spartans get stunned 80-64 at Ohio State. Everything had been going right for Ohio State to finish the half, and it was capped off by former MI guard Andrew Dakich drilling a 30-footer off glass as time expired.

On the men's side, No. 18 Ohio State eclipsed Kentucky by a score of 210.50-178.50. We played a much better game tonight, but Ohio State's a good hockey team. The offense got no inside-out movement until Cassius Winston returned to the game.
Takal Molson led Canisius with 21 points, his third 20-point game of the season. Joshua Langford and Miles Bridges each scored 17 points.
When Izzo said his team didn't play ahead of itself on Sunday, he was spot on. Tip-off is set for 7:00 p.m. ET. on ESPN2. Tate's ability to possess the basketball ensured the Ohio State victory, as CJ Jackson seemed to lose his cool at times.

. "There may not be a better one that I've seen".
After dismantling then No. 1 Michigan State at the Schottenstein Center, Ohio State has a favorable schedule for the remainder of the regular season. Ahsante Shivers led with 18 points, Evan Fisher 16 and Prince Oduro 13. "Every way. They made it hard". "I don't know", Izzo said of the non-call on Jackson. "If we're knocking down shots, that's how the big leads come". "Just the battle level and the compete level that we need to have to be in games is kind of the barrier of entry". Buckeye Nation has missed you. The Spartans embrace it.
