With 26 seconds left, Burke took the ball from Keith Appling and threw down a
two-handed jam, which turned out to be the deciding basket. He then deflected
a pass and came up with the game-ending steal on Michigan State's final
possession to secure the win.
Michigan (24-5, 11-5 Big Ten), which was coming off an inexcusable loss to
conference dweller Penn State on Wednesday, received 11 points from Mitch
McGary and eight apiece from Glenn Robinson III and Caris LeVert in the

the Spartans (22-7, 11-5) avoid their third straight defeat. Gary Harris added
16 points in the setback, which helped conference-leading Indiana clinch at
least a share of the Big Ten title.
