Michigan State 66, Bradley 61 -

Drew Neitzel's clutch three-pointer started an important run and Raymar Morgan scored 15 points to help ninth-ranked Michigan State (7-1) rally to beat Bradley (6-3)in Peoria, Ill.

Michigan State trailed by nine points in the second half, but Neitzel came through in the latter stages after struggling for most of the game.

His three-pointer with just under five minutes left cut the deficit to 51-50 and started a 7-0 surge that put the Spartans ahead for good at 54-51.

Neitzel also hit three free throws in the final minute to help Michigan State hang on for its fourth straight victory.

Neitzel and Kalin Lucas had 13 points apiece for the Spartans.

Tennessee 76, Chattanooga 70 -

Chris Lofton had 16 points, JaJuan Smith added 13, and 10th-ranked Tennessee survived a scare to beat Chattanooga in Chattanooga, Tenn.

In their first true road test of the season, the Volunteers (8-1) shot a season low of 36 percent from the field. Tennessee's only other games outside Knoxville were at neutral sites, against Texas and West Virginia.

Stephen McDowell had a team high of 14 points for Chattanooga, which fell to 5-30 against its intrastate adversary. Marcus Watts added 13 points and 10 rebounds, and Nicchaeus Doaks 11 points.

Tennessee was outrebounded for the fourth game this season, this time by 43-30, and it almost was costly.

The Mocs (4-4) muscled their way past the Vols for much of the game, but a season high of 34 turnovers cost them a chance to score their second consecutive upset over Tennessee. The Mocs defeated the Vols in the last meeting between the schools, in 2004.

Tennessee found itself trailing by 41-40 with 17 minutes to play. The Vols hit their stride late, and the Mocs tired with the constant pressure from Tennessee's swarming full-court defense, which converted turnovers into points.

The Vols were powered by a 14-4 run that gave them a 61-49 lead, drowning out the once blaring home crowd.
