Michigan State's 10th win in a row was perhaps the easiest one yet.
Freshman forward Brandan Dawson delivered another fine games for the Spartans, notching a career-high 16 points on 8-14 shooting, which follows his 5-6 shooting effort against Bowling Green in Saturday's win. Guard Brandon Wood made 4-4 three-pointers and 6-6 overall from the field on his way to 16 points. And Draymond Green quietly accumulated 10 points,9 rebounds and 6 assists.
One statistical curiosity was the free throw shooting by both teams: Michigan State shot 11-24 while UMKC shot 8-15 on a crook night at the stripe.
With the win, Michigan Stat improves to 10-2, after starting the season 0-2.
