EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -Freshman Kalin Lucas scored 16 points and Goran Suton added 15 to help Michigan State avoid another embarrassing exhibition loss with a 61-55 victory over Division II Michigan Tech on Wednesday night.
The Spartans had lost to Division II Grand Valley State in double overtime on Friday.
Suton hit a rare 3-pointer and another quick basket when the Spartans led 52-49 with 2 minutes left.
Tim Strom scored 12 of his 17 points in the second half to lead the Huskies. Michigan Tech led for much of the first half before falling behind 29-22 at the break. Just when the Spartans seemed ready to pull away, Michigan Tech cut the margin to 38-37 midway through the second half. They could never retake the lead.
The Spartans begin their regular season next Tuesday when Chicago State visits to open the 16-team CBE Classic.
