PEORIA, Ill. (AP) -- Drew Neitzel heated up just in time to help Michigan State avoid a costly upset.
Neitzel's clutch 3-pointer started an important run and Raymar Morgan scored 15 to help the ninth-ranked Spartans rally for a 66-61 victory over Bradley on Tuesday night.
Michigan State trailed by nine in the second half but Neitzel came through in the latter stages after struggling for most of the game.
His 3 with just under 5 minutes left cut it to 51-50 and started a 7-0 surge that put the Spartans ahead for good, 54-51. And Neitzel hit three free throws in the final minute to help Michigan State hang on for its fourth straight victory.
Neitzel and Kalin Lucas had 13 points apiece for the Spartans. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
