Spartans alone on top of Big Ten; #13 in AP Poll

Wow, what an amazingly fantastic game yesterday, Michigan State topping Ohio State on the hardwood, 59-56. And, with Iowa beating Wisconsin, now the Spartans stand atop the Big Ten. MSU's bigs are for real, and as a group, make up the best interior defense in the conference.  Save for Deshawn Thomas and his 28 points, MSU snuffed out the rest of the Buckeye squad all game long.  Here are the standings.... next up: at Wisconsin on Tuesday.  Go BIG GREEN!   MSU has zoomed up to #13 in the AP poll.....
