CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) Miles Bridges helped No. 6 Michigan State overcome a game so sloppy, coach Tom Izzo called it "ridiculous."
Bridges scored 31 points, Jaren Jackson Jr. had 21 points and 11 rebounds and the Spartans beat Illinois 87-74 on Monday night despite committing 25 turnovers.
It was the most giveaways for Michigan State (18-3, 6-2 Big Ten) since November of 2005 against Arizona, when they had 27 in an overtime win. This was the Spartans' third straight game with 20 or more turnovers, and they've won each game by double digits.
