EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Michigan State is 6-0 in the Big Ten, its best start to conference play in coach Tom Izzo's 15 seasons.But Izzo is thoroughly unimpressed, especially after Wednesday night's lackluster 70-63 victory over Iowa. The Spartans (No. 7 ESPN/USA Today, No. 6 AP) lacked intensity and let the overmatched Hawkeyes cut a 19-point lead to three late in the game.
• Raymar Morgan had 16 points and Durrell Summers added 12 as Michigan State moved to 6-0 in the Big Ten for the first time under Tom Izzo.
• Draymond Green added nine points, 11 rebounds, three assists and three blocks as the Spartans have won seven in a row and 17 straight at home.
• The Hawkeyes have lost 11 straight road games vs. ranked opponents and 11 straight Big Ten road games. They've also lost five straight games vs. Michigan State.
