Spartans fall to BC 65-58 in ACC-Big10 Tilt

Michigan State had no answers for Eagles forward Jared Dudley who poured in 30 points and added ten rebounds to lead Boston College to a 65-58 decision over the Spartans in the ACC-Big Ten challenge last night.

Michigan State had no answers for Eagles forward Jared Dudley who poured in 30 points and added ten rebounds to lead Boston College to a 65-58 decision over the Spartans in the ACC-Big Ten challenge last night.

Dudley was sensational hitting 10-of-13 shots from the field including 3-of-3 from the three point line while also dishing off three assist to go with his ten rebounds.

There is no truth to the rumor that Dudley sold popcorn at halftime.

Throttling the Spartans big men all night was 6-foot-10 center Sean Williams, who blocked four dunk attempts by the Spartans, including two against rising Spartans center Idong Ibok who tried unsuccessfully to match the Eagles physical interior play.

In contrast to Dudley's effort, MSU's leading score, Drew Neitzel scored just 12 points and didn't get on the board until the second half.

Still, MSU played hard and cut the Eagles 15-point lead down to six with 1:17 left in the contest, but could get no closer.

MSU's defensive lapses in the paint help Boston College build a 26-18 halftime lead that the Spartans never could overcome.

State will next host the Bradley Braves, Sunday at 3:00pm EST at the Breslin Center.
