COL BKB: Michigan State 98, Mount St. Mary's 65

Nov. 30, 2013 at 6:29 AM   |   Comments

EAST LANSING, Mich., Nov. 29 (UPI) -- Keith Appling came off the bench to score 17 points Friday and No. 1 Michigan State shot 63 percent from the field to overwhelm Mount St. Mary's 98-65.

The Spartans completed their first week as the nation's top-ranked team with a solid performance that included nine 3-pointers in 18 tries.

Appling, Adriean Payne and Branden Dawson are usually in Michigan State's starting lineup, but they began the game on the bench due to a reported classroom attendance issue.

Travis Trice contributed 15 points in his first career start. The Spartans improved to 7-0 and will next be in action against North Carolina Wednesday.

Mount St. Mary's (2-6) was led by Will Miller with 15 points.

It was the second time in school history that the Mountaineers had faced a No. 1-ranked team. They lost to North Carolina to open the 2008 NCAA Tournament when the Tar Heels were at the top of the rankings.
