Los Angeles Times - - SPORTS -

Jon Teske scored all 17 of his points in the first half, and No. 2 Michi­gan is now off to its best start in pro­gram his­tory after an 80-60 vic­tory over vis­it­ing North­west­ern on Sun­day night.

The Wolver­ines (17-0, 6-0) started 16-0 on two pre­vi­ous oc­ca­sions, but this sea­son’s team sur­passed that by rout­ing North­west­ern. Zavier Simp­son scored a ca­reer-high 24 points for Michi­gan, and Teske matched his own ca­reer high in scor­ing.

The 7-foot-1 Teske made three three-point­ers, plus a cou­ple more midrange shots. Simp­son — who en­tered the game shoot­ing 29% from three-point range — con­nected five times from be­yond the arc.

North­west­ern (10-7, 1-5) was with­out lead­ing scorer Vic Law, who was out with a lower-body in­jury. Der­erk Par­don scored 20 points for North­west­ern.

No. 6 Michi­gan State 71, at Penn State 56: Nick Ward had 16 points and 11 re­bounds to lead Michi­gan State. Matt McQuaid added 15 points and Cas­sius Win­ston chipped in 11 for the Spar­tans (15-2, 6-0), who have won 10 straight. They also beat the Nit­tany Li­ons (7-10, 0-6) for the 10th con­sec­u­tive time.
