Payne has 13 points in less than 8 minutes. 54-44.
Game getting physical but officials letting most of it go on both sides.

Marshall heading back to line three times again.
Lions need to start getting stops though. MSU 11-of-19 this half.
Instead of getting posterized, I think Sasa is taking it to another level -- getting dunked on by every Big Ten team. Wonder if he's trying to make a calendar.
61-48, 7:43 left.
This one's over, gang. Spartans looking pretty formidable right now.
Jon Graham set two screens on Ross Travis on that possession. Double-teams not working for Lions.
Nix gets an and-one.
66-52, 6:18 left.
Newbill reaches 20 points on Payne goaltend. Free throw gets him 21.
70-57, 4:59 left.
Newbill with a sweet drive. Lions scoring just enough to keep folks interested ... in Big Macs, if not the win.
well, at least this game was somewhat entertaining.
Is it just me or do the refs call everything on their offensive possessions but look the other way when our guys are getting fouled just the same?
I've also only been watching the last couple of min.
Anyone else see Jon Graham put back that miss?
71-61, 3 min to play.
I say this with the objective eye of a journalist, and as a guy who's been reading Te'o tweets all night, but the refs haven't really been a factor in this one.
Which is unusual for a Hightower game.
I'm in shock
big macs have a chance!
We just had about a six-player scrum for the ball. Marshall came up with it and got fouled.
Credit Lions for still fighting. Fans appreciate it.
71-66 on Marshall drive after Graham tips free-throw miss back. 1:55 left. Big Macs in play!
Nix just backed Graham into paint and got layup to hit side of rim, then spin up and in.
73-66, 1:38 left.
What a bullshit drive to the hoop, hooks our guy, then travels.
Taylor fouls Payne away from ball with 1:13 left.
Did I say he could have had 20 if he played the whole game? He has 20 in 15 minutes.
Newbill hits 25 and gets the people Big Macs.
76-70. Appling to line for Spartans with 31.6 left.
Much better effort by our boys this game. However, we really need some big men to compete in the B1G. Sasa, Graham, and Ackerman just are getting mauled.
Final score: Michigan State 81, Penn State 72.
Was out and didn't catch the game tonight, reading through this thread and others this comment is one of the funnier ones I've seen. Was intrigued when I got a "PSU down four at the half" text but seems like Payne was a force in the second half.
