Likewise, with U-M down 66-61 and less than a minute to play in regulation, MSU's Bryn Forbes and Javon Bess got mixed up on a ball screen, allowing U-M's Spike Albrecht enough space to drill the deep three that made overtime possible. It's mental lapses like these that Tom Izzo continues to lament as the Spartans (15-7, 6-3 Big Ten) prepare for Saturday's home game against Illinois (noon, ESPN).

"They've got to learn that these little things matter more, and we're not doing as good of a job of getting that through," Izzo said after the game. "I said all along I love my team, I love the guys. But when a couple guys make the errors that we made on a switch (on a ball screen), I had to inform them that there were many (former MSU) players in the crowd that in front of 15,000 people would have grabbed somebody and made sure that he knew. And we're just not getting that yet, you know?"
