After losing 54-51 at Wisconsin last Sunday, Michigan State's women's team lost 66-51 to Minnesota at the Breslin Center Thursday night. Aisha Jefferson had 15 points to lead the Spartans who committed 14 turnovers, far below their usual number.
Minnesota had four players in double figures, led by Emily Fox with 20. The Gophers beat MSU earlier at Minneapolis 60-44. The Spartans trailed 34-27 at halftime and the lead grew to 17 at one point in the second half.
MSU is now 12-5 in the Big Ten and 19-9 on the season, the same overall record as Minnesota. If MSU wins its finale at home, noon Sunday against Purdue, MSU would have the second seed in next week's Big Ten tournament, but a loss could drop State as low as fourth. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion.
