EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Kalin Lucas scored 25 points, lifting Michigan State to a 61-57 win over Illinois on Saturday night.

The Spartans (15-11, 7-7 Big Ten) have won two of three after losing five of six to bolster their shot at playing in a 14th straight NCAA tournament.

The Fighting Illini (17-10, 7-7) have lost three of five to make it more difficult to earn one of the coveted 68 spots in college basketball's showcase next month.
