“Marble was gassed. That was part of the reason we took him out,” Izzo said. “On the other side of it, Kithier did a pretty good job with him last time. ”Izzo stuck with Kithier for the next 5:48 instead of going back to Marble or freshman Mady Sissoko, whose five points and four rebounds in 6:39 of first-half action kept the Spartans in the game early. There were three timeouts during that run with Kithier in the lineup.
