EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -Raymar Morgan scored 24 points to help Michigan State beat Green Bay 93-75 Saturday in its highest-scoring game in the last two seasons.
Freshman Kalin Lucas had 17 points off the bench and All-American Drew Neitzel added 16 for the No. 7 Spartans (12-1), who tied the school's 2000-01 Final Four team for the fastest start in Tom Izzo's 13 years as head coach.
