Guard Taryn McCutcheon led Michigan State with a career-high 25 points on a career-high six 3-pointers, including two in a 27-second span in the third quarter that turned a four-point margin into a double-digit cushion.

Fourth-ranked Michigan State University needed overtime to beat visiting Rutgers 76-72 and avoid a second consecutive loss. The Spartans are coming off two of their worst performances of the season and they look to be reeling and in a major shooting slump, but this is the type of game that could get their engines revving again.

That was Michigan State's second defeat of the season, and when the Spartans returned to action Wednesday night at home against Rutgers, the malaise continued.

Michigan State Spartans head coach Tom Izzo chats with guard Miles Bridges (22) during a college basketball game between Michigan State and Cleveland State on December 29, 2017, at the Breslin Student Events Center in East Lansing, MI.

Michigan State's aggressiveness unsettled the Terps from the start.

"We have another great opportunity against a top team in Michigan State, and we'll try not to make the same mistakes against them". Maryland shot 36 percent from the floor to Michigan State's 43 percent from the field at intermission, compounding poor offense with uncharacteristic errors.

The Wolverines just lost to Purdue by a point in Ann Arbor, but they have plenty of talent to contend with a team like the Spartans.

This is an important question not only for this game but for the rest of the season as well.

Shortly after the announcement was made, the Longhorns played one of their best games of the season in beating TCU 99-98.

Michigan State has won five straight meetings in this series, including a 62-52 win at Rutgers in early December. Maryland had 24 turnovers total and shot just 5-for-17 from beyond the arc. Michigan forced Michigan State into 21 turnovers, and that would be a good recipe for the Wolverines in this game, too. "He's just got to be a little more aggressive".

Most would agree the Wolverines have a better chance to win now than they did a few weeks ago, though, when considering how MSU has struggled lately.

"Tum did a good job defensively, and Tum hits a big 3, goes 2-for-2, 1-for-1, you know, has an assist but he played pretty good defensively". Winston leads the Big Ten, averaging 7.2 assists per game. "We have a hard task at Michigan State, who's a good team, and we will be well prepared and go there and play".

Michigan State had the biggest lead in the game with an advantage of 16 at one point.

With a star like Brunson averaging 19.4 points, 5.2 assists and shooting 59.0 percent from the field, and a new commitment on the team to defensive play, the Wildcats are playing their best basketball of the season and they are on the road to a memorable year. Michigan State freshman forward Jaren Jackson Jr.is averaging 11.1 points per game.
