EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Brandon Wood scored 16 points and No. 21 Michigan State overcame a sluggish first half to beat Bowling Green 74-60 on Saturday night.

Derrick Nix added a career-high 14 points to go with seven rebounds and Branden Dawson had 13 points for the Spartans (9-2), who have won nine straight. Draymond Green had 12 points and 10 rebounds, his fifth double-double this season.

Jehvon Clarke had 14 points, A’uston Calhoun 12 and Jordon Crawford 11 for the Falcons (5-5), who outplayed Michigan State for much of the first half before trailing 35-33 at the break.

Bowling Green, the first visiting team to win in Breslin Center in December 1989, had a 25-16 edge in rebounds over the first 20 minutes, including a stunning 13-5 edge in offensive boards. But the Spartans wound up with a 39-37 edge in that category.
