EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Cassius Winston gave his offensively challenged team a needed boost.
Winston scored 14 of his 23 points in the opening minutes of the second half, bouncing back from a rough start to help No. 11 Michigan State beat Louisiana-Monroe 80-59 on Wednesday night.
The point guard said he had to be aggressive because "we were struggling to get points on the board." Michigan State made just 28 percent of its shots overall in the first half and was even worse on 3-pointers, connecting on 2 of 19.
