EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Amanda Hyde scored 23 points and led five IPFW players in double digits in an 81-76 upset win over No. 21 Michigan State on Sunday.
The Mastodons (4-4) controlled the game with 53.7 percent shooting from the floor, including 13 of 23 from beyond the arc. Joining Hyde in double digits was Haley Seibert and Rachel Mauk, with 14 points apiece, Ariana Simmons, who added 12 points, and Mur Hagerman with 10.
Michigan State (5-2) hit just 30 of its 73 shots from the floor (41.1 percent), and 7 of 20 from 3-point range, marking its first home court loss of the season. Trailing by as many as 10 points in the second half, the Spartans narrowed the gap to 79-76 on a Kiana Johnson layup with 5 seconds remaining but the rally stalled.
Aerial Powers led Michigan State with a game-high 28 points and 14 rebounds.
