Costello’s tip-in with 1:14 left gave Michigan State a 67-64 lead, and Russell Byrd’s 3 with 34 seconds put Michigan State up by six.

Iowa still had a chance to force a second overtime, but Mike Gesell missed a driving layup at the buzzer.

Devyn Marble had 21 points for Iowa (16-5, 5-3), which went without a field goal for the final 10 minutes of regulation and until the final seconds of the 5-minute overtime.

The Hawkeyes boast one of the nation’s deepest benches, and they kept threatening to run away from the undermanned Spartans early in the second half. Michigan State wouldn’t let it happen.

The tough-minded Spartans had an answer for nearly every basket that could have swung the momentum back in Iowa’s favor.

No. 4 Wichita State 57, Loyola of Chicago 45 • In Wichita, Kan., Cleanthony Early scored 23 points, including 12 of the 21 Wichita State scored in the second half, to help the fourth-ranked Shockers (22-0, 9-0 Missouri Valley Conference) stay unbeaten.
