EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Bryn Forbes scored 25 points and Denzel Valentine had 19 points and 14 rebounds, leading No. 11 Michigan State over No. 7 Maryland 74-65 Saturday night.

Maryland's Melo Trimble scored 24 points and Robert Carter had 13.

Matt Costello had 15 points and 12 rebounds, including a few late in the game at both ends of the court, along with three blocks and two steals for the Spartans.
