Miles Bridges trolled ESPN analyst Dan Dakich after hitting a big shot for Michigan State on Saturday.

Yante Maten scored 20 points, and Juwan Parker and Rayshaun Hammonds each finished with 14 points for the Georgia (13-11, 4-8 SEC), who have lost three in a row and six of seven overall.

The Ohio State Buckeyes are in first place alone in the Big Ten Conference after an 82-64 win over Iowa. He's averaged a more-than-respectable 17.7 points and 7.3 rebounds, but he hasn't been as aggressive as you'd hope for someone who is one of the most explosive athletes in the sport.

No team in the country is better-suited to try and execute that game-plan than Michigan State.

Still, just like the Buckeyes football team when it was derailed by Iowa after an emotional comeback win against Penn State, the basketball Buckeyes might be facing Iowa at the wrong time if they can't put Purdue behind them.

Cassius Winston had 10 points and 10 assists for the Spartans.

The Buckeyes did just that, shutting down the Hawkeyes over a four-minute stretch and scoring 14 straight points to up their lead to 58-36 just five minutes into the second half.

Big-time game made for the biggest of moments.

As big as that play was, Goins was equally as important to the Spartans for how he held Purdue's Vincent Edwards to just eight points on 3-for-11 shooting.

"They made a decision not to double Isaac and so a lot of people won't continue to go to the well", Purdue coach Matt Painter said.

Goodin got fouled by Ronnie Harrell Jr. after Harrell had made three straight free throws to give the Bluejays a one-point lead with 4.6 seconds left.

Michigan State opted to defend Haas one-on-one.

Texas Tech 66, Kansas St. 47 - In Manhattan, Kan., Keenan Evans scored 19 points and the No. 7 Red Raiders (21-4, 8-4) throttled the Wildcats (17-8, 6-6) to take sole possession of the Big 12 lead.

Forward Donta Hall and guard Collin Sexton led the Tide with 17 and 16 points, respectively, and guard John Petty chipped in with 14. Grant Williams scored 12 of his 16 points in the second half. Bridges will get the plaudits, but this truly was a team effort, one that was won thanks to Michigan State's unheralded bench guys and defensive execution.

Dejan Vasiljevic led the Hurricanes with 17 points and Chris Lykes added 16 as Miami (18-6, 7-5) snapped its three-game winning streak. On four occasions in the first half, Purdue defended deep into a possession only to have Michigan State hit a jumper or drive for a layup. His rebounding and shot-blocking numbers have come down, but that's a by-product of playing on a team with the biggest front line in the sport this year instead of playing as a four.
