Wisconsin tops Michigan State men

By AP

MADISON, WI – Jason Bohannon scored 19 points to lead No. 16 Wisconsin to a 67-49 victory over No. 5 Michigan State on Tuesday night, snapping the Spartans perfect Big Ten start and leaving them without leading scorer Kalin Lucas.

Jordan Taylor added 17 points as Wisconsin (17-5, 7-3) won its third game over a team ranked sixth or better this season and its 18th straight at the Kohl Center despite senior guard Trevon Hughes' early foul trouble.

Michigan State (19-4, 9-1) may have lost a lot more after Lucas, last season's Big Ten player of the year, left with just under 11 minutes to play when he came down awkwardly on the foot of Wisconsin's Keaton Nankivil and injured his ankle.

Lucas, averaging 16 points per game, did not return, finishing with seven points to snap a string of 33 consecutive games in double figures.
