Spartans tops Wisconsin, capture Big 10 hoops title

Muhammad-Ali Abdur-Rahkman scored 21 points and Moritz Wagner added 20 points and 13 rebounds to help No. 5 seeded and 15th-ranked MI beat No. 4 seed Nebraska 77-58 in the Big Ten Tournament quarterfinals Friday afternoon at Madison Square Garden in NY. Less than a week after beating the Badgers by five in Madison, the Spartans were taken down to the final possession again at Madison Square Garden. Penn State has been an odd team, as it has some wins against top teams in the Big Ten, but some bad losses to below average squads. However, what might be most impressive is him going 4-for-4 at the free-throw line.

"I thought there was some championship DNA in there the way they handled things when we were up by 10 and then down by two".

Michigan tips off against four seed Nebraska in the quarterfinals this afternoon, with the victor facing top seed Michigan State or nine seed Wisconsin tomorrow. The 6-foot-10 junior finished with a game-high 22 points as he made 10-of-15 shots from the floor. Gary Clark led a 24-4 run that put No. 11 Cincinnati (25-4, 14-2) ahead to stay early in the second half, and the Bearcats held on for an 82-74 victory over Tulsa (17-11, 10-7) that preserved their one-game lead in the American Athletic Conference heading into the final week.

Wisconsin fouled Cowan rather than let him attempt a game-tying 3-pointer. He's added some playmaking ability as well.

Brad Davison and Iverson each made two free throws in the final nine seconds for the Badgers, who advanced to the quarterfinals against top-seeded Michigan State.

The trend began in 2012, when MI won the Preseason NIT with wins over Pittsburgh and Kansas State at the Garden. Four Badgers starters were in double figures and Maryland failed to score over 30 points in either half.

The month of March is upon us and it's arguably the most intriguing time of the year for basketball fans.

The Spartans quickly responded.

Carsen Edwards had 18 points for the Boilermakers (26-5, 15-3 Big Ten), who won their third straight after a three-game skid.

Three minutes later, Watson would tap out another second chance for a 3-pointer - this time from Robinson - to give MI a 34-20 lead late in the first half.

MI went 1-2-1 against Wisconsin this season.

MSU led, 32-28, after a first half which featured no long runs by either team.

Robinson scored 16 points on 6-of-9 shooting and made four threes to help give MI an early lead. "I just didn't think we played well". In result, the Spartans scored six of their first 10 points in the paint.

"As far as these allegations, I'm just going to tell you that I feel very comfortable that we've emphatically cooperated with everybody on every search", said Izzo, who declined to dispute anything ESPN reported about his program. After scoring 21 consecutive points, Michigan State led 66-60.

Wisconsin was also having their way at the rim courtesy of Happ. The sophomore sharpshooter made 3 of 4 from beyond the arc in the first half, with a couple buckets coming quickly in transition. "Thats very important to take advantage of their bench". Michigan's offense found a plethora of open looks.

"We just got to play our game", Livers said.

Wisconsin's remarkable postseason streak - 19 straight NCAA Tournament appearances - is officially toast.

"Well, I believe we're an NCAA Tournament team now", Miles said.
