EVANSTON, Ill. (AP) - No. 21 Michigan State got its 20th win of the season and kept hope alive for a share of Big Ten Conference title with an easy, 75-44 win over Northwestern Thursday night.

With one game left in the regular season, the Spartans are tied with No. 11 Penn State and No. 17 Nebraska, which knocked off the Lady Lions Monday. All three schools are 12-3. Michigan State closes out the regular season at home Sunday against Indiana.

Alex Cohen had 11 points and was the only scorer to reach double figures for Northwestern (14-14, 4-11), which now has lost seven straight. The Wildcats shot just 27.9 percent (17 of 61).
