Hawks Rally Falls Short At #6 Michigan State 70-63

Posted:

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Raymar Morgan scored 16 points and No. 6 Michigan State remained unbeaten in Big Ten play by holding off Iowa's furious comeback bid in a 70-63 victory Wednesday night.

The Spartans led by 19 midway through the second half before Iowa got back into it. Matt Gatens hit a 3-pointer with 2:05 left to cut the deficit to 64-61, but the Hawkeyes couldn't get any closer.

Michigan State (16-3, 6-0 Big Ten) is off to its best conference start in 15 seasons under coach Tom Izzo. The last Spartans team to open 7-0 in league play was the 1977-78 squad led by Magic Johnson.

Durrell Summers had 12 points for Michigan State, and Kalin Lucas added 11.

Gatens scored 17 points for Iowa (7-12, 1-5).
