Despite a season-high 28 points redshirt-junior guard Shay Colley, the No. 15/17 Michigan State women’s basketball team dropped its Big Ten road opener to Northwestern at Welsh-Ryan Arena on Thursday. With the loss, the Spartans eight-game winning streak comes to an end, as MSU falls to 11-2 this season and 1-1 in Big Ten action. Northwestern is now 9-5 overall and 2-1 in league play. There were 15 lead changes in the tightly-contested battle.
