Spartans humbled at the Breslin Center against the longhorns

Post  Admin on Thu Dec 23, 2010 6:46 am



The scoreboard at Michigan State’s arena malfunctioned.
The Spartans did on the court, too.
Jordan Hamilton scored 21 points, Tristan Thompson had 17 points and 15 rebounds and No. 18 Texas beat No. 12 Michigan State 67-55.
The Longhorns (10-2) became the first nonconference team to win at the Breslin Center since Duke on Dec. 3, 2003, snapping a 52-game winning streak.

The Spartans (8-4) have advanced to half of the past 12 Final Fours, winning the 2000 national title, but they’ve got to improve a lot to make it to college basketball’s next showcase. They have failed to live up to their preseason billing as the second-ranked team in country with only one quality win over then-No. 13 Washington in the Maui Invitational and four losses in a nine-game stretch.
Michigan State’s Kalin Lucas scored 17 points and didn’t have much help. Lucas moved past Morris Peterson on the school’s all-time list and into a 10th-place tie with Raymar Morgan with 1,597 points.
