The key to the second half is not letting the game get away before the first TV timeout.
Offensive rebound totals tonight (for two teams who usually do a pretty good job of offensive rebounding):

Well that was a perfect start.
Marshall opens half with 3.
Colella gets a rare friendly bounce on a 3.
31-31, under 18 to play.
Good shooters get the rolls
Taylor with a great block ... but Nix there to grab the carom, score and get fouled by Sasa, who simply looks outmatched tonight.
Dawson and Payne check in with 16:37 remaining. Scattered boos from crowd.
Marshall hits 3 to beat shot clock buzzer. Lions were 1-7 from arc in first half; they're 3-4 to open second.
35-34 Sparty, timeout with 15:30 to play.
Have to love the meltdown on the MSU board too.
Marshall must have had a protein shake at half. Playing very well right now.
Payne gets involved with little hook shot. Spartans still up 1.
So we are gonna win right?
Seems like every year since Izzo's been there, Spartans have had at least two guys who are built like defensive ends. This year that's Payne and Dawson (I'm counting Nix as a DT).
Newbill misses two FTs and is just 3-6 from line tonight.
Payne with another short j. 39-36.
Sasa at the FT line smells like $$$$$$$
A gem from the MSU board

Marshall again. 10 this half already, 17 overall.
41-40. 12:30 left.
Newbill giving away points at line. Makes 1 of 2, Lions still down 2 ...
... until Trice hits three from corner. 46-41, 11:15 left.
Marshall is the Jermaine man tonight
Marshall for three. Insert NBA Jam heating up reference here.
Payne again in the paint, though. Dude might have had 20 if he'd played the whole game.
Sasa has to be the worst big man in the Big Ten, well outside of Graham.
Chambers arguing a lot more calls during timeouts these last few games. Wonder if it's just built-up frustration or if there's a method to it.
Payne hits 18 footer while being fouled by Colella. Spartans' inside-outside movement so much better since he and Dawson checked in.
Free throw makes it 51-44 with 10:08 to play. If Lions want to have a shot, they need a couple of answers here.
This team needs a paynekiller
