With four players recording double digits in points, the Spartans also led in rebounds by a 35-29 margin.

Following the contest, head coach Tom Izzo was sure to give a shoutout to the Maryland crowd.

“I’ve got to tell ya, [I’ve] played in a lot of great places, but not many better than it was out there tonight,” he said. “So to all your fans who were booing me, I’ve got to give you a little respect, because that was a hell of an atmosphere.”

You can bet there will be a rocking atmosphere at State College in Pennsylvania for Michigan State’s next matchup against the Penn State Nittany Lions on Tuesday.
