No. 5 Michigan State rallies past Penn State 79-63

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. (AP) - Branden Dawson scored 20 points and Keith Appling had 14 to help No. 5 Michigan State beat Penn State 79-63 on Tuesday night.

Gary Harris added 13 points and Travis Tice had 12 for the Spartans (12-1, 1-0) in the Big Ten opener for both teams. Dawson led a second-half charge to help the Spartans rally from a halftime deficit and win their fifth straight game.

The Spartans were in total control in the second half, and hit 10 of 20 3-pointers overall to turn this one into a rout.

Brandon Taylor had 18 points for the Nittany Lions (9-5, 0-1) and D.J. Newbill scored 17. Newbill had three 3s and 14 points in the first half to keep the upset bid alive. But a second-half shooting funk for the Nittany Lions cost them against the preseason conference favorite.
