NCAA Game Summary - Iowa at Michigan State



(Thursday, March 6th)

Final Score: (22) Michigan State 86, (24) Iowa 76

East Lansing, MI (SportsNetwork.com) - Travis Trice needed just five shots to post a season-high 17 points as No. 22 Michigan State upended 24th-ranked Iowa 86-76 at Breslin Center.

Trice shot 4-of-5 from the floor, hit three 3-pointers and was perfect in six attempts from the free throw line as Michigan State (23-7, 12-5 Big Ten) got back on track after its two-game losing skid. The Spartans had lost three of four entering Thursday's tilt.

"I don't know where to start," said Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo. "It was an interesting game."

Adreian Payne had 14 points, Denzel Valentine went for 13 points and nine assists and Keith Appling and Gary Harris netted 12 points apiece in the triumph. Branden Dawson stuffed the stat sheet with eight points, seven rebounds, five steals and three blocked shots.

Roy Devyn Marble finished with a game-high 24 points for Iowa (20-10, 9-8), losers in four of five.

"You've got to give them credit, they were making them," said Iowa coach Fran McCaffery on the Spartans' 3-point shooting. "Some of them were tough, but some of them were wide open, so that's our fault."

MSU trailed at halftime but used a pair of big second half runs to pull away. Appling had a pair of layups during a 9-0 burst to start the period, boosting the Spartans to a 48-41 edge.

The lead was 60-55 near the midway point when Michigan State put the game out of reach. Trice started the rally with a personal 8-0 surge, and after Marble and Aaron White scored to cut the deficit back to single digits, Dawson's dunk highlighted another 8-0 push. Trice hit four free throws and Appling split a pair at the strip to cap the run, which put the Spartans in front 77-59.

The Hawkeyes netted the final eight points of the contest.

Game Notes

Michigan State won the rebounding margin 29-27. No player on Iowa had more than three boards ... MSU shot 10-of-17 from distance ... White scored 10 on 5-of-8 shooting for the Hawkeyes.
