EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Alan Anderson didn't miss and scored a career-high 28 points to lead No. 10 Michigan State to a 77-64 win over No. 20 Wisconsin on Thursday, snapping a 12-game losing streak against ranked opponents and a six-game skid against the Badgers.
Anderson was 10-of-10 from the field and 7-of-7 from the line for the Spartans (20-4, 11-2 Big Ten), who have won 10 of 11 since losing to the Badgers (17-7, 8-5) on Jan. 16.
Michigan State's last nine victories have been by double digits.
Wisconsin's Mike Wilkinson scored 18 points, Alando Tucker had 16 and reserve Zach Morley added 11.
Anderson became the fourth Michigan State player to take at least 10 shots, without missing. Ron Charles made all 12 of his shots in a game in 1980 while Carlton Valentine (1986) and Bob Chapman (1977) both made all 11 of their shots in a game.
Anderson, whose previous career high was 18 points, scored 11 straight points for the Spartans early in the first half. His one-man spurt gave Michigan State an 11-point lead, which it was able to maintain easily the rest of the game.
