    EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Travis Trice scored a career-high 20 points off the bench to lead sluggish Michigan State past Central Connecticut State 89-69 Wednesday night.

    Trice, a freshman point guard, was 6 for 8 from the field, including all four 3-point tries, and 4 for 5 at the free-throw line. He also led the Spartans (7-2) with five assists.

    Draymond Green had 14 points and nine rebounds while Derrick Nix added 13 points and Branden Dawson had 11 points and 11 rebounds.

    Ken Horton had 17 points, Robbie Ptacek scored 16 and Kyle Vinales had 11 points for the fast-starting Blue Devils (5-3), who led 22-11 after the first seven minutes. Horton and Ptacek each had 30 in CCSU's last win over Sacred Heart.

    It was Michigan State's 300th win in 344 games at the Breslin Center, which opened in 1989.
