No. 7 Michigan State vs. No. 3 Kansas State
Oop it up!
Kansas State won the opening tip and Markquis Nowell quickly turned it into two points by lobbing a pass to Keyontae Johnson for the alley-oop slam.
Moments later, Mady Sissoko was on the receiving end of an alley-oop to help Michigan State score its first points of the game.
Both were making shots with ease early on. Joey Hauser and Jaden Akins did much of the scoring for Sparty in the first 10 minutes, while Johnson and David N’Guessan scored their fair share of points for the Wildcats.
No one stopping Nowell
Nowell was dropping dimes all over the place in the first half, recording 10 assists in the first 20 minutes to give Kansas State a 43-38 lead going into the break.
