EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Tom Izzo had just become the sixth coach in Big Ten history with at least six conference championships, and he didn't even realize it."Really? That's the one thing I don't keep track of," Izzo said after Michigan State (No. 12 ESPN/USA Today, No. 11 AP) beat Michigan 64-48 Sunday to finish the regular season in a three-way tie. "I keep track of national championships, and I want more of those."If Raymar Morgan can maintain his momentum, the Spartans will have a shot to give Izzo his second national title and the school its third.
• Raymar Morgan led the Spartans with 22 points and 10 rebounds for his fifth double-double of the season. Morgan is averaging 15.8 points and 10.8 rebounds over his last four games.
• Michigan has lost 11 straight at Michigan State, not having won there since January 1997.
• Michigan scored 14 points in the first half, and Morgan (6) made more first-half field goals than the Wolverines (5).
