After No. 2 Michigan State beat Georgia, 80-68, in front of a sellout crowd of 10,699, Spartans Head Coach Tom Izzo said that fans in the Grand Rapids area made Van Andel Arena seem like Breslin Center West.

The Spartans used a late run in the first half to take a nine-point lead at the break and extended it to as many as 18 points in the second half en route to the 12-point win.

Prior to the game, Izzo and Georgia Head Coach Mark Fox presented a check for more than $339,000 that will be donated to the American Red Cross and American Red Cross - International, benefiting victims of the summer hurricanes, particularly in Georgia and The Bahamas.
