Yesterday in the Big Ten, it was a tale of two halves in both a Michigan victory at Crisler Center and a Michigan State loss at Ohio State. Number-7 Michigan overcame a slow start and beat Illinois 71-to-58. Trey Burke had 26 points in the win for the Wolverines, including 19 in the second half, which began with Michigan trailing 31-to-28.

U-of-M improved to 10-and-4 in the conference and 23-and-4 overall. Fourth-ranked Michigan State, which will be dropping in the polls this week, has lost 2 straight for the first time this season with their 68-to-60 setback Sunday to the number-18 Buckeyes.

The Spartans were ahead 31-to-25 at the break and stretched the advantage to 36-to-27 early in the second half. But Ohio State scored 18 of the next 23 points to take the lead for good. Freshman Gary Harris led M-S-U with 14 points. The defeat dropped the Spartans to 11-and-4 in the Big Ten and two full games behind the league leading and top-ranked Indiana Hoosiers. Michigan State will stew over this loss until it plays again on Sunday at Michigan. In between, Michigan has a game Wednesday at Penn State.
