Happ Makes History, Badgers Fall to Michigan State

Henry gave MSU a bit of a lift, scoring eight and consistently providing good perimeter defense. Michigan State scored the next seven for a 44-43 edge. Perhaps no Spartan embodied that more Tuesday night than his point guard.

Penn State took the lead at 10-7 and never looked back, upsetting number-seven MI 75-69 at the Bryce Jordan Center.

The No. 6-ranked University of MI men's basketball team dropped a Big Ten Conference road game against Penn State, 75-69, on Tuesday night (Feb. 12) at Bryce Jordan Center.

With six minutes and two seconds remaining in the second half on Tuesday, senior big man Ethan Happ scored his 2000th point as a Badger, joining rare company and bringing No. 20 Wisconsin within one point at 56-55.

What'd we learn from the Spartans' gritty win at Wisconsin? D'Mitrik Trice is also contributing 13.2 points per game for the team.

Of course, we will find out soon enough if the Wolverines can do it but if they can't figure out how to play winning basketball on the road these next two weeks, they won't win the Big Ten.

At times, the game seemed like a contest between the two heavyweights as Winston regularly answered Happ hook shots with a floater or 3-pointer.

The back-and-forth played out from there as Wisconsin went to Happ on almost every possession. Iowa's Megan Gustafson tied the conference record with her 77th career double-double, with 29 points and 16 rebounds against Ohio State last Sunday. Goins and forward Nick Ward each added 12 points.

The Badgers shot six of 20 from three-point range, and five of 12 from the free throw line, including a rough zero for six night from Happ. With two technical fouls assessed to Beilein, the Nittany Lions would hit three of four free throws to start the half before Zavier Simpson hit a trey in transition, 18 seconds into the half to nullify the free throws.

And when you look at the schedule over the final six games, you can see things aren't going to get any easier. "But there's so many things in the other 37 minutes that we can be better at".

Still, his 20 points put him at 2,000 for his career as he became the fourth player in the Big Ten to ever hit that mark and grab 1,000 rebounds.

EditorsNote: Minor fixes, including style on 3-pointer.

It was a high-scoring, back-and-forth half that Michigan State head Tom Izzo coach called "un-American", and the prolific scoring wouldn't last for either team thereafter. In the first half, McQuaid held Brevin Pritzl by the jersey as the guard went up in the lane to pull in a pass. McQuaid let go as Pritzl went up for the shot, which he missed.

When the two teams needed their stars, both Winston and Happ shined.

Since that last long-distance make, he is 0-for-5 from 3-point land.
