Minnesota quickly opened a seven-point lead to begin the second half, but Michigan State has fought right back and have a chance to cut the lead to two coming back from the timeout.
Gary Harris was the recipient of a steal from Derrick Nix and took it in for the layup and drew a foul.
Michigan State continues to struggle on defense and has been awful from the free-throw line. The Spartans are now just 1-for-9 as Branden Dawson missed a pair.
Yet, somehow, the Spartans are still in the game with 15:52 to play.
