Michigan State basketball tops Northwestern on senior night

EAST LANSING — Michigan State basketball needed its seniors on Wednesday night. More than at any point in a turbulent season.

Kissing the floor would have to wait until later.

They provided a gritty second half in a game where everything was hard to come by. But it was a sophomore who delivered the biggest moments on senior night in a must-win game for the Spartans.

Tre Holloman chased down a loose-ball rebound and got fouled with 9.4 seconds left, hitting both free throws as MSU escaped with a 53-49 victory over Northwestern at Breslin Center.
