The Tar Heels had a 17-7 lead at the first media timeout with 15:24 to go. After losing by 35 points to UNC in the same building back at Ford Field, this wasn't the start the Spartans needed. UNC has made six of its first seven shots. UNC's Danny Green and Wayne Ellington have already knocked down 3-pointers.
Michigan State goes with Travis Walton, the Big Ten Player of the Year, guarding Ellington.
