Sparty Tops Wisconsin; Happ Sets Scoring Mark

Cassius Winston scored 23 points to help No. 11 Michigan State beat 20th-ranked Wisconsin 67-59. Wisconsin’s Ethan Happ, who scored 20 points and grabbed 12 rebounds put him at 2,000 points for his career as he became the fourth player in the Big Ten — and the first in more than 35 years — to hit that mark and grab 1,000 rebounds. He also took over solo third place on Wisconsin’s all-time assists list.  The Badgers will host Illinois Monday night.

Elsewhere in the Big Ten Lamar Stevens scored 15 of his 26 points in the first half and grabbed 12 rebounds to lead Penn State to an upset No. 6 Michigan 75-69.

Jalen Smith scored 14 of his 16 points in the second half, and No. 24 Maryland used a strong defensive performance to beat 12th-ranked Purdue 70-56, ending the Boilermakers’ eight-game winning streak.
