Thanks a to a big game from Alvin Ellis, Michigan State got some much-needed revenge over Ohio State Tuesday night in the Breslin Center.
Ellis scored 15 of his 18 points with a 3-point barrage in the first half and finished with six 3-pointers — doubling his previous career high — to power the Spartans past the Buckeyes, 74-66. Ellis finished 6-of-9 beyond the arc and 6-of-11 overall. He came up just two points shy of his career high, but this was still a night he won’t soon forget.
Miles Bridges had 17 points and 11 rebounds and Nick Ward scored 15 for Michigan State, which has won four of five and is inching closer to securing a berth in the NCAA Tournament.
