No. 14 Michigan St tops Northwestern 79-50, moves into 1st

By  | 

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Cassius Winston scored 18 points and Xavier Tillman had 12 points, eight rebounds and four assists to lead No. 14 Michigan State in a 79-50 win over Northwestern.

The Spartans moved into sole possession of first place in the Big Ten on Wednesday night. The lead in the conference may last only a day because No. 19 Illinois has a chance to pull into a tie Thursday night at home against Minnesota.

Pat Spencer scored 11 points for the last-place Wildcats and was their only double-digit scorer in a game they never led.
