Kaleb Wesson led Ohio State with 25 points, despite foul trouble, while Luther Muhammed scored 12 in their first home loss of the year, and second defeat of the season. The Spartans are now 4-0 in conference play, and have not lost since November 27th. Out of their 13 victories this season, none have been bigger than what they pulled off on Saturday.
The Spartans were playing short-handed for a second straight game, as Joshua Langford remained out with an injury. They really got hot once the temperature got cold, doing so with a perfect 6-0 month of December. It was a back and forth affair once Michigan State overcame their halftime deficit, as the game was tied six times before Michigan State jumped ahead for good. The Spartans will play host to Purdue on Tuesday night, while Ohio State will hit the road against Rutgers on Wednesday.
