Michigan State, UNC survive scares
Michigan State didn't look like the same team that beat No. 1 Kentucky this week. The second-ranked Spartans were outrebounded and went 0-for-7 from behind the arc Friday as they needed a late run to escape Columbia 62-53 at home. North Carolina looked equally shaken after shooting just 27 percent in the first half against Holy Cross. Like the Spartans, the No. 12 Tar Heels pulled away down the stretch for the 62-54 win. Were these just stumbles or a sign of what's to come?
