EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Cassius Winston had six points and four assists and became the Big Ten career assists leader as No. 15 Michigan State beat Wisconsin 67-55 Friday night.

The Badgers (11-7, 4-3 Big Ten) trailed the entire game, but went on a 13-0 run with Nate Reuvers scoring 11 points to cut their deficit to six points early in the second half.

Michigan State (14-4, 6-1 Big Ten) pulled away with balanced scoring and stingy defense, building a 63-39 lead.

Shortly thereafter, Winston threw an alley-oop lob to Xavier Tillman, giving him four assists in the game and 817 in his career. Former Spartan Mateen Cleaves, who attended the game, ended his national championship-winning career with 816 assists in 2000.

Tillman had 15 points and nine rebounds, Gabe Brown and Aaron Henry scored 13 points apiece and reserve Rocket Watts added 11 points.

Reuvers scored 19 points on 7-of-15 shooting and Kobe King had 10 points for the Badgers.
