EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Keith Appling scored in double figures for the first time in more than five weeks for Michigan State, leading the 22nd-ranked Spartans to an 86-76 win over No. 24 Iowa Thursday.

Appling showed his old aggressiveness before hip and wrist injuries and scored 12 points for the Spartans (23-7, 12-5 Big Ten). Travis Trice, Appling’s backup, was 3 for 4 from 3-point range and had 16 points, while Adreian Payne added 14 points in his final home game.

Roy Devyn Marble had 24 points for Iowa (20-10, 9-8) which has continued to struggle on defense.
