Michigan State held off Wisconsin down the stretch, sending the Badgers to a Big Ten Tournament semifinal loss on Saturday afternoon, 67-55.
The Badgers were within two possessions midway through the second half, but a poor stretch of shooting doomed Wisconsin as Michigan State advanced to the Big Ten Championship.
Ethan Happ scored 20 and Kobe King added 13 for Wisconsin. Cassius Winston of Michigan State scored a game-high 21 to lead three Spartans in double figures.
