One, two, three. Again, nearly blowing a big lead. Again, managing to escape with a victory. Barely. And with almost one of the worst collapses in Tom Izzo’s career. Michigan State basketball blew a 20-point second-half lead with seven turnovers in the final 2:26 as Maryland pulled within two points twice. But Tyson Walker drove, spun, and hit a short jumper, Max Christie grabbed two key defensive rebounds and hit four free throws in the final 31.1 seconds, and the Spartans hung on to advance with a 76-72 victory in the second round of the Big Ten tournament Thursday night.
