Winston leads No. 24 Michigan St past No. 9 Maryland 78-66

Tom Izzo certainly got Michigan State in the proper frame of mind, and he should be commended for devising a game plan good enough to deny Maryland a chance to clinch first place in the Big Ten.

''It was an unbelievable designed 75-foo...
