IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Keith Appling scored 16 points and No. 7 Michigan State outlasted No. 15 Iowa 71-69 in overtime Tuesday night, handing the Hawkeyes their first home loss of the season.

Matt Costello had 11 points and 12 rebounds for the Spartans (19-2, 8-1 Big Ten), who avoided consecutive defeats despite missing injured starters Adreian Payne and Branden Dawson.

Costello’s tip-in with 1:14 left gave Michigan State a 67-64 lead, and Russell Byrd’s 3 with 34 seconds put Michigan State up by six.
Iowa still had a chance to force a second overtime, but Mike Gesell missed a driving layup at the buzzer.

Devyn Marble had 21 points for Iowa (16-5, 5-3), which went without a field goal for the final 10 minutes of regulation and the 5-minute overtime.
