OTL: Applications to Michigan State tumble

Undergraduate applications to Michigan State University fell by 8.3 percent over the past year amid the scandal involving former team physician and associate professor Larry Nassar and the school's handling of sexual assault allegations.

Jeff Borzello ESPN Staff Writer 

Just a really well-rounded win for Michigan State. Spartans dominated for the last 30-plus minutes against Iowa. 28 assists on 31 field goals, 48 points in the paint, just a clinic against Iowa's defense. Cassius Winston now has 18 assists and one turnover in his last two games.

Good ball movement leads to Ward dunk (0:23)
