MSU outlasts Purdue on senior night 72-66

Posted: Updated:
EAST LANSING, MI (AP) -  Travis Trice equaled a career high with 27 points and Matt Costello lifted Michigan State at both ends of the court, helping the Spartans to a 72-66 victory over Purdue on Wednesday night.

   The Spartans (20-10, 11-6 Big Ten) played the whole second half without Branden Dawson, who appeared to take a shot to the head and was limited to nine minutes on his senior night. Somehow, Michigan State held its own inside against Purdue's pair of 7-footers. A.J. Hammons managed only seven points on 3-of-12 shooting for the Boilermakers (19-11, 11-6), and Isaac Haas had nine points but only two rebounds.

   Michigan State snapped a two-game losing streak and at least momentarily calmed concerns over its NCAA tournament chances. Purdue, meanwhile, missed a chance to pick up a significant road win as the regular season winds down.
