19 pts, 7 rebs, 8-10 FGs
Surprisingly successful against the Owls' zone, notching career-high points.
The Spartans squelched Temple's shooters, holding previously torrid Quincy Wadley to four points. And Zach Randolph (14 points) led an MSU charge that dominated inside (43-27 rebounding edge). Somehow, the Owls were still within four with 3:21 left.
Michigan State: Saturday vs. (2) Arizona
Temple: Hopefully, another try for John Chaney.
