No. 5 Michigan State beats Texas 92-78

Posted: Updated:

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) -- Adreian Payne scored a career-high 32 points and No. 5 Michigan State dominated the final 11 minutes of a 92-78 victory over Texas on Saturday.

The Spartans (10-1) led for only 56 seconds in the first half as Texas (10-2) controlled the game early.

Michigan State used a 9-2 run to take a 52-50 lead about halfway through the second half. Following two quick buckets by Jonathan Holmes, six Spartans scored during a 14-2 run that put the game away.

Payne made two free throws during that run and went 10 of 13 from the field and 11 of 12 from the free throw line. Gary Harris, who missed three recent games with an ankle injury, scored 19 points while Travis Trice, battling a foot blister, contributed 13 points and was 3 of 4 from 3-point range
