INDIANAPOLIS (AP) --- Annalise Pickrel scored 18 points and Branndais Agee was
clutch down the stretch Friday as No. 19 Michigan State rallied to beat
Michigan 61-58 in the Big Ten quarterfinals.
The second-seeded Spartans (22-8) trailed for all but a brief time early in the
second until scoring the last six points of the game. Agee made two free throws
at 2:59 to make it a one-point game. Tori Jankoska put MSU up 59-58 with a
layup at 1:15. After a Michigan turnover, Agee grabbed an offensive rebound and
scored with 31 seconds left.
Madison Ristovski, who led seventh-seeded Michigan (18-13) with 18 points,
missed a 3 from the corner with 15 seconds left and the Wolverines did not get
a good final look.
Michigan started off strong, taking a 27-13 lead before the Spartans pulled to
31-28 at the half.
