Hall layup leads No. 3 Michigan State over No. 12 Seton Hall

12 Seton Hall 76-73 Thursday night in a wildly exciting contest worthy of March Madness.

Cassius Winston added two free throws with 3.4 seconds to play to push the lead to three points, and the Spartans (2-1) played tough defense on drives in the lane by Sandro Mamukelashvili and Myles Powell in the waning seconds.

The Pirates eventually saw a desperation half-court heave by Powell bounce off the top of the rim as the final buzzer sounded.

The crowd was electric from the moment Powell was introduced as a starter to every outstanding shot, block and lead change.

It was tough and physical, with officials for the most part letting them play, and the game was compelling from start to finish.
