AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) — Bryn Forbes scored a career-high 32 points and No. 1 Michigan State needed overtime to beat Oakland 99-93 on Tuesday night, the Spartans’ first game without the injured Denzel Valentine.

Eron Harris added 27 points for the Spartans (13-0) who are off to the best start in school history.

Forbes hit seven 3s in nine attempts, including one in overtime that he celebrated by slapping hands with former Michigan State star Mateen Cleaves.

The Spartans trailed by as many as 15 points.

Kay Felder, the nation’s No. 2 scorer, had 37 points and nine assists for the Golden Grizzlies (7-4). With his 38 points in a win at Washington, Felder had 75 points in less than 72 hours.
