Michigan State is on to the Sweet 16, but it was hardly smooth sailing.
The Spartans withstood a big second-half run from Harvard to win 80-73 and move on to the Sweet 16 for the third straight year.
Branden Dawson had 20 first-half points to tie a career high before the break. He finished with a game-high and career-high 26 points.
The Spartans led by 12 at halftime, but the Crimson used a 16-2 second-half run to tie the game 55-55 with a Wesley Saunders layup.
It is the 12th Sweet 16 appearance for the Spartans in Tom Izzo's 17 consecutive NCAA Tournament appearances.
