Men's Basketball mlive.com —  Michigan State blew a six-point lead in the final 34 seconds of regulation and saw some familiar demons return as it fell to Minnesota, 96-90 at home, and had its four-game win streak snapped. The Spartans twice fouled 3-point shooters in the waning moments and missed a key free throw that left the door open for Minnesota guard Carlos Morris hit a 3-pointer with 1.9 seconds left and improbably tie the game.
