The #3 Michigan State Spartans got their third win of their season tonight to improve to 3-1 on the season. They destroyed Charleston Southern 94-46, and it wasn’t that close.

The Spartans were led by Xavier Tillman who had 21 points and 10 rebounds for the double-double. Gabe Brown had a career high 12 points and six rebounds in his first career start for Aaron Henry. With two bad ankles, Izzo let Henry take the night off.

The Spartans won the battle of the boards 54-28 and the Spartans also had 12 turnovers. Charleston Southern had 12 turnovers also and the Spartans converted that to 22 points.

The Spartan continued their habit of being unselfish. They had 31 assists on 36 baskets. The Spartans shot 24% from three, 56% from the field and a disappointing 72% from the charity stripe.

The Spartans return to the court in one week on November 25 in Maui, Hawaii against the Virginia Tech Hokies. That game can be seen on ESPN at 5PM.

The Duke Blue Devils will be in East Lansing to take on the Spartans on Tuesday, December 3rd in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge. That game can be seen on ESPN and it tips off at 9:30 PM
