MSU Blasts Nebraska-Omaha 110-68
EAST LANSING (WWJ/AP) – A lopsided victory for the Michigan State Spartans over Nebraska-Omaha 110-68 on Sunday.
Draymond Green made a quick recovery from a scary injury, and finished with 23 points and 10 rebounds to lead the Spartans past Nebraska-Omaha.
Green was 10 for 18 from the field for the streaking Spartans (6-2), including 6-for-8 shooting in the first half when he went down in pain under his basket. He returned to the game just three minutes later wearing a left knee wrap.
Backcourt partner Keith Appling added 13 points, nine rebounds and seven assists in 23 minutes. The Spartans shot 61 percent from the field, including 50 percent on 3-pointers.
Brandon Wood had his second straight strong performance, contributing 20 points and six rebounds, as Michigan State ruled the boards 54-16 and matched the sixth-highest point total in school history.
Mitch Albers had 17 points for the Mavericks (3-6), whose busy weekend began with a win at Northern Illinois Saturday.
