Burke leads Michigan to one-point win over MSU

Trey Burke was the hero for Michigan yesterday afternoon as the number-4 Wolverines were able to hang on for a 58-to-57 win over ninth ranked Michigan State at Crisler Center. With 26 seconds left, Burke took the ball from Spartan guard Keith Appling and threw down a two-handed jam, which turned out to be the deciding basket. Burke then deflected a pass and came up with the game-ending steal on Michigan State's final possession to secure the win. Burke finished with 21 points, eight assists, and 5 steals.

Michigan remained undefeated at home this season and moved into a 4-way logjam for second place in the Big Ten behind top-ranked Indiana, although the Hoosiers are expected to slip in the polls after being upset last week by Minnesota. The Wolverines were coming off a terrible loss on Wednesday at conference cellar dweller Penn State while yesterday’s victory avenges Michigan’s 23-point loss last month at Michigan State.

Adreian Payne totaled 17 points and 12 rebounds for the Spartans, but it wasn't enough to help M-S-U avoid their third straight defeat. The outcome also helped Indians clinch at least a share of the conference title.

Elsewhere in the Big Ten yesterday, Purdue scored a 69-to-56 upset win at number-17 Wisconsin
