Michigan State 63, Iowa 60
EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - By the time Kalisha Keane caught the ball in the corner, she had only one option: shoot. That was Michigan State's plan all along. Keane's 3-pointer with 0.5 seconds remaining gave the Spartans (No. 10 ESPN/USA Today, No. 9 AP) a 63-60 win over Iowa (No. 20 ESPN/USA Today, No. 16 AP) on Thursday night. Michigan State had blown an eight-point lead in the span of about a minute, but the Spartans executed their final play perfectly, setting up their leading scorer for the winning shot. RECAP
