MSU basketball beats Albion in exhibition


EAST LANSING, Mich. (WOOD) — Michigan State University rolled over Albion College in an exhibition game Tuesday.

MSU won 85-50 at the Breslin Center.

Forward Xavier Tillman, a Grand Rapids native, led the Spartans with 19 points.

“I think we did pretty good. I think we played hard. That was the most important thing,” MSU senior point guard Cassius Winston said. “Once we get to playing hard, no matter the competition, no matter the level … we start to look like that team that people have ranked high.”

MSU plays Kentucky Nov. 4 at Madison Square Garden in New York for the Champions Classic. The first home game of the regular season is Nov. 10 versus Binghamton.
