MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Michigan State's Kalin Lucas injured his right ankle in the second half of the fifth-ranked Spartans' game against No. 16 Wisconsin and had to be helped off the court.
Lucas, last season's Big Ten player of the year, went up for a jump shot with just under 11 minutes to play Tuesday night and landed on the left foot of Wisconsin forward Keaton Nankivil.
Lucas immediately crumpled to the court, clutching the ankle. After several minutes with the trainer and coach Tom Izzo, Lucas was helped to his feet, but didn't put any weight on the leg as he was carried to the locker room.
Lucas, averaging 16 points a game, was 3 of 9 from the field for seven points with two rebounds and two assists, snapping a streak of 33 straight games scoring in double figures.
