EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Freshman Joshua Langford had a season-high 15 points to help Michigan State bounce back from a poor performance with a 77-57 win over Youngstown State on Tuesday night.

The Spartans (6-4) were coming off a four-point win over Oral Roberts.

The Penguins (5-5) were led by Matt Donlan, who scored 15 of his 21 points in the first half, and Francisco Santiago, who had eight of his 13 points after halftime.

Both teams were without their leading scorers, both of whom are from Flint, Michigan.

Michigan State’s Miles Bridges missed a second straight game with a sprained left ankle.  Youngstown State’s Cameron Morse sat out a third consecutive game with an injured right wrist.

The Spartans led by seven points at halftime before pulling away in the second half.
