With its season on the line in a hostile environment against a pesky mid-major squad, Michigan State found its offense, then its defense to close out a win. Michigan State pulled away with five minutes and hung on late left to beat Davidson, 74-73, in a first-round NCAA Tournament matchup on Friday night at Bon Secours Wellness Arena. Senior forward Joey Hauser tied his career-high with 27 points to lead Michigan State’s offensive effort.
