UNDATED (AP) — Fourth-ranked Michigan has avenged last month’s road loss to Michigan State that knocked the Wolverines from the top of the AP poll. Michigan slipped past the ninth-ranked Spartans 58-57 in Ann Arbor. Trey Burke stole the ball from Keith Appling near midcourt and went in for the dunk with 22 seconds left that provided the decisive points.

Michigan State’s third straight loss clinches at least a tie for the Big Ten title for top-ranked Indiana.
