Iowa Routed by MI 74-53 in Big Ten Tournament Quarterfinals

Amazon Prime members can take advantage of a free 7-day trial of CBS All Access to watch MI and MSU online.

McQuaid nailed a personal-best seven 3-pointers.

Matt McQuaid scored a career-high 27 points, Cassius Winston converted the go-ahead layup in the closing minute and No. 6 Michigan State rallied to beat No. 10 Michigan 65-60 on Sunday in Chicago for its sixth Big Ten Tournament championship. During the team's game against Michigan, Ahrens grabbed a rebound, but landed awkwardly on a Wolverines player's foot. Yet, the significance of the 2019 Big Ten Tournament championship game lies more in the opponent the Wolverines will face: archrival Michigan State.

"All in all, a gritty performance by us", coach Tom Izzo said. "We've got to embrace this opportunity, because we might not get it again".

There's a cliche that says it's hard to beat a team three times in a season but reality says otherwise.

If Michigan advances, it would play the victor of No. 7 Nevada and No. 10 Florida.

Michigan State forward Nick Ward didn't play in either game and Matthews missed the most recent one and was battling injury in the first matchup. Teske and Tillman went up for the rebound, the ball got tipped out of bounds and the referees gave possession to Michigan State after a review as Michigan coach John Beilein screamed on the sideline. Third-seeded MI hit seven threes in the half, while Iowa made zero.

Ahrens said he was relieved X-rays showed the ankle was not broken, but the extent of the injury was not clear. Medical staff rushed to his side and placed his lower left leg in an air cast before carting him off the court.

MI put the game away in the second half with a 9-0 run that made it 56-30 with about 14 minutes left. A conference tournament championship would also be a nice prize before they set their sights on another deep NCAA run. Michigan State has 50 assists on 72 field goals (69.4 percent) across its past three outings while Michigan has assists on 55 of 85 field goals (64.7 percent) during its past three games.
