Michigan State survives, edges Davidson 74-73 in NCAAs

GREENVILLE, S.C. (AP) Michigan State was tough enough to take back the lead in a critical moment, then fortunate enough to withstand Davidson's desperation final charge.

"I thought it was a little bit of a roller-coaster," Hall of Fame coach Tom Izzo said.

The Spartans survived regardless, getting a career-high 27 points from Joey Hauser to edge the Wildcats 74-73 on Friday night in the NCAA Tournament's first round. The win sets up one more marquee postseason matchup with Duke and retiring Hall of Famer Mike Krzyzewski.
