EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- Morgan Stroman scored 20 points in a near-perfect shooting night to lead No. 9 Miami past Michigan State 76-60 Thursday night in the Big Ten/ACC Challenge.
Stroman had 13 points at the break, hitting all four of her shots from the field and all five at the line for the much quicker Hurricanes (6-1). She finished 7 for 7 and 6 for 7, respectively. Shenise Johnson added 13 points and Stefanie Yderstrom had 11 in Miami's second-closest game this season.
Porsche Poole had 17 points for the foul-plagued Spartans (5-3), who played without starters Lykendra Johnson and Taylor Alton for most of the first half Michigan State trailed 38-26 at halftime.
Courtney Schiffauer and Jasmine Hines each had nine points for Michigan State, while Becca Mills grabbed nine rebounds, all in the first 20 minutes.
