Ryan McMahon scored 24 points off the bench as host Louisville topped No. 9 Michigan State 82-78 in overtime on Tuesday in Louisville, Ky.
Jordan Nwora scored 14 for Louisville (4-2), while Dwayne Sutton and Christen Cunningham added 13 points each.
Michigan State (5-2) trailed much of the game, and when Cassius Winston fouled out with 4:01 to play in regulation, it looked as if a comeback wouldn’t happen. Instead, the Spartans regained the lead and had multiple chances to put the game away in the final minute.
However, they missed the front end of a one-and-one twice and committed a crucial turnover, sending what looked like a huge road win to overtime.

After getting the ball back with 28 seconds left on a Jones turnover, Virginia Tech (5-1) squandered a chance at the final shot when Justin Robinson (19 points) whiffed on an NBA-range 3-pointer with 12 seconds left. Ahmed Hill corralled the rebound, only to put up a wild miss that was rebounded by Penn State’s Myles Dread.
