MSU Basketball wins in OT over Minnesota

For the second straight game, a game that was seemingly in Michigan State’s control, nearly slipped out of their hands, before the No. 5 Michigan State Spartans (15-1, 4-0 Big Ten) managed to put away the Minnesota Gophers (13-4, 2-2) in overtime, 87-75.

Following that dunk, Payne’s teammate Matt Costello got a little bit excited and he didn’t care who knew it. Check out his celebration which may remind you of a 13 year-old girl at a Beyonce concert.

WATCH: Michigan State students taunt Ohio State at end of game

Michigan State’s famous Izzone brought its A-game tonight when the Ohio State Buckeyes were in town. The sellout crowd was incredibly intimidating, drowning OSU in “Yes” chants, among others, throughout the game to honor a Travis Jackson touchdown celebration from football season.
