    EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Drew Neitzel scored 17 points and Raymar Morgan had 16 as Michigan State shot 58 percent from the field in an 81-49 victory over Iowa on Saturday.

    The Spartans (19-8, 6-6) blew the game open with an 18-0 first-half run. They made 65 percent of their shots in the first 20 minutes and led 44-17 at halftime.

    Maurice Joseph added 12 points, Goran Suton had 10 points and eight rebounds before fouling out, and Travis Walton added nine points and 10 assists for Michigan State.

    Adam Haluska, the league's leading scorer at 21.2 points per game, had scored 11 points to lead Iowa (15-12, 7-6). He was 3-for-14 from the field and 0-for-6 from 3-point range.

    The Hawkeyes shot 25 percent from the field in the first 20 minutes, when the Spartans had one more 3-point basket than Iowa had field goals.

    Michigan State avenged a 62-60 loss in Iowa City in the Big Ten opener, as Iowa struggled with seven assists and 17 turnovers.

    The Hawkeyes appeared sluggish from the outset, just 42 hours after their snow-postponed win over Northwestern.
