Michigan State Earns Share of Big Ten Title
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Raymar Morgan scored 13 of his 22 points in the first half, helping No. 11 Michigan State build a big lead it used to beat Michigan 64-48 on Sunday and win a piece of the Big Ten title.

The Spartans (24-7, 14-4 Big Ten) shared the conference championship with Ohio State and Purdue, winning their second straight title and sixth under coach Tom Izzo.

The Wolverines (14-16, 7-11) have to make a stunning appearance in the Big Ten tournament to avoid a losing record and would have to win the championship game to earn a consecutive bid to the NCAA tournament.

Michigan's Manny Harris and DeShawn Sims made only one shot each in the first half, as their team matched a Big Ten-low with 14 points, and finished with a combined 13 points.
