EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan State shut down Ohio State in the second half despite an injury to Nick Ward.

Now the Spartans may be without their standout big man for a while.

Ward left in the second half with a broken left hand, but No. 11 Michigan State still rolled to a 62-44 victory over Ohio State on Sunday. The Spartans held the Buckeyes to only 13 points in the second half. Coach Tom Izzo initially said Ward might have dislocated a finger, but the school announced that the 6-foot-9 junior has a hairline fracture.
