EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gary Harris scored 17 points and Derrick Nix had 14 to help No. 8 Michigan State rout No. 4 Michigan 75-52 on Tuesday night, the rivalry's first matchup of top 10 teams.
The Spartans (21-4, 10-2 Big Ten) broke a first-place tie in the conference with No. 1 Indiana, which plays at Michigan State next Tuesday.
The Wolverines (21-4, 8-4), who have lost three of four, were held to a season-low point total.
Michigan State didn't trail once, led by as many as 16 points in the first half and enjoyed 30-point leads in the second half.
Trey Burke scored 18 points for the Wolverines while Tim Hardaway Jr. was 1 of 11 from the field and scored a season-low two points. Michigan had a season-high 16 turnovers.

GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) - Scottie Wilbekin had 14 points and eight assists and Pat Young recorded his sixth double-double of the season for Florida.
The Gators (20-3, 10-1 Southeastern Conference) snapped a five-game losing streak in the series, and coach Billy Donovan improved to 2-7 against Kentucky's John Calipari.
The Wildcats (17-7, 8-3) lost for the first time in six games, and it may have been costly.
Nerlens Noel, the nation's leading shot-blocker, injured his left knee in the second half and did not return.
Noel, a freshman who averages 10.6 points, 9.6 rebounds and 4.5 blocks a game for the defending national champions, landed awkwardly on his leg with about 8 minutes to play.
