(EAST LANSING) – Alvin Ellis chose to stay at Michigan State, resisting the urge of following two of his former teammates and transferring to another school. The Spartans are glad he did. Ellis scored 15 of his 18 points with a 3-point barrage in the first half to help Michigan State beat Ohio State 74-66 on Tuesday night. Miles Bridges had 17 points and 11 rebounds and Nick Ward scored 15 for Michigan State (16-10, 8-5 Big Ten), which has won four of five. Ohio State's Marc Loving scored 22 points and reserve JaQuan Lyle scored all 10 of his points in the first half after missing the previous game, a setback to No. 23 Maryland.
The Buckeyes (15-12, 5-9) have lost four of six.
