COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — E.J. Liddell had 20 points and eight rebounds to lead No. 13 Ohio State past Michigan State 79-62.

Justice Suing added 17 points and seven rebounds for the Buckeyes, who have won three in a row and six of seven.

Michigan State had hoped to rebound from an embarrassing 30-point loss to Rutgers on Thursday that followed a long COVID-19 layoff. Joshua Langford led the Spartans with 14 points.
