EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Gary Harris scored 20 of his 24 points in the second half, helping No. 3 Michigan State beat Indiana 71-66 on Tuesday night to remain unbeaten in the Big Ten.

The Spartans (18-1, 7-0) have won 11 straight games, extending their best one-loss start in a season in school history.

The Hoosiers (12-7, 2-4) have lost two straight and four of six.

Michigan State went on a 10-2 run to take a 62-52 lead with 4:29 left, but led by just four points after Yogi Ferrell made a 3-pointer with 36 seconds left. Keith Appling made one of two free throws on the ensuing possession and Stanford Robinson's runner pulled the Hoosiers within three points.

Travis Trice made two free throws with 13.7 seconds left to give the Spartans a five-point lead, essentially sealing their 18th win in 19 home games against Indiana.

The Spartans were missing center Adreian Payne for a fourth straight game with a sprained right foot. The Hoosiers didn't have senior forward Will Sheehey in the starting lineup for the first time this season after he injured an ankle in a home loss to Northwestern.

TEXAS 67, No. 22 KANSAS ST. 64

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - Jonathan Holmes made a catch-and-shoot 3 pointer at the buzzer to send Texas to its fourth straight victory in the Big 12 and second in a row over a ranked team.

Texas had almost blown its chance for the game-winner when it nearly botched an inbounds pass with 3 seconds left. But after a quick timeout, Isaiah Taylor zipped the ball to the Holmes in the left corner and he put up the shot over two defenders. The ball swished through the basket at the buzzer and Holmes was mobbed by his teammates.

Javan Felix scored 23 points to lead Texas (15-4, 4-2) and Cam Ridley scored 18. Holmes finished with 10 points.

Thomas Gipson scored 24 points for Kansas State (14-5, 4-2), which had tied the game at 64 on Shane Southwell's twisting, off-balance layup with 5 seconds to play after Felix had missed two free throws.
