Michigan St beats Penn State 78-51 in Big Ten Tournament

WASHINGTON (AP) It didn't matter that Michigan State had no momentum, or that the Spartans were playing a team that beat them soundly in January.

This was the Big Ten Tournament, when the past usually doesn't matter and Michigan State is almost always at its best.

Miles Bridges and Nick Ward had 15 points and nine rebounds apiece, and the Spartans breezed past weary Penn State 78-51 Thursday.
