Sparty Hangs On

Michigan State ended a three game losing streak on Tuesday night, upsetting No. 22 Illinois on the road 70-69.  The Spartans led by as many as 17 in the game, but needed a Xavier Tillman hoop with six seconds left to pull out the win.  Rocket Watts led MSU with 21 points, while Tillman had 17 with 11 rebounds.  The Spartans are home on Saturday to face No. 9 Maryland.
