Michigan State Vs. Bowling Green Final Score: Spartans Run Away In Second Half For 9th Straight Win

No. 23 Michigan State only led by two points at the half, but made the necessary adjustments at halftime to come away with a relatively easy win against the Bowling Green Falcons on Saturday night -- their 9th straight win of the season. 

The Spartans were being dominated on the boards in the first half, a huge reason why they only led by two at the break, but managed to finish the game with 36 rebounds to the Falcons' 30. Michigan State moved the ball well, too, finishing with 15 assists to go with their 25 baskets. MSU outscored BG 39-27 in the second half. 

Michigan State's Brandon Wood led all scorers with 16 on 5-of-8 shooting. Draymond Green added 12 points and 10 rebounds, and also had a team-high six assists. 

Jehvon Clarke led the Falcons with 14 points. 

The Spartans (9-2) now have two more tune ups before they start the Big Ten schedule against No. 20 Indiana on December 28.

Michigan State Vs. Bowling Green Score Update: Spartans Only Up 35-33 On Falcons At Half

The Michigan State Spartans (9-2), going for their 10th straight win of the season, are struggling with the Bowling Green Falcons (5-4) on their own floor Saturday night. At the half, they are holding on to just a two point lead, 35-33.

What might be more disconcerting for the Spartans is that they held the Falcons to 37-percent shooting in the first half while shooting 44-percent themselves, but Bowling Green has 11 more shot attempts than MSU. The Spartans are getting beat on the boards and can't stop Jordon Crawford who has 10 points on 4-of-7 shooting. Forward A'uston Calhoun has added eight points and six rebounds for Bowling Green. 

Derrick Nix is Michigan State's leading scorer with eight points on 2-of-5 shooting. He also has four rebounds. 

Coach Tom Izzo was visibly upset with his players throughout the first half for allowing Bowling Green to hang around. 

The Spartans are ranked in the Top 25 for the first time this season after their win over Gonzaga last weekend. After Bowling Green, they have two more tune ups before they start the Big Ten schedule against No. 20 Indiana on December 28.
