On Michigan State’s last possession, Keith Appling drove to the basket but had his shot blocked by Jordan Morgan.

Brandon Wood of the Spartans came up with the ball, and Draymond Green was able to get another shot off from near the free throw line, but it missed.

Freshman Trey Burke scored 20 points for Michigan. He rebounded a miss by Appling in the final minute and turned it into a transition chance, passing to Douglass for the winning layup.
