STORYLINES

• Iowa suffered its most lopsided loss to Penn State on Saturday, 82-58, despite 19 points by Tyler Cook. Sophomore guard Jordan Bohannon played fewer minutes than in any Big Ten game this season due to an illness and finished with only three points. The Hawkeyes shot 38.2 percent from the field, their worst mark in nearly two months.

• Michigan State, ranked fourth in this week’s Associated Press poll, has won six straight games but the last three — against Maryland, Penn State and Indiana — have been decided by eight points or less. The Spartans defeated Indiana 63-60 on Saturday behind 12 points by reserve guard Matt McQuaid and seven blocked shots by freshman Jaren Jackson.

• Michigan State leads the Big Ten in field goal percentage, field goal percentage defense, rebounding margin, offensive rebounds, blocked shots and assists. Individually, Jackson leads the conference in blocked shots, Cassius Winston leads in assists and 3-point percentage, and Miles Bridges and Winston rank 1-2 in free throw percentage.
