EAST LANSING (AP) -- Austin Thornton had a career-high 13 points off the bench to lead Michigan State past Arkansas-Little Rock 69-47 Sunday night.
Guards Keith Appling and Brandon Wood combined for 21 points for Michigan State (2-2), which won its second game in less than 50 hours after losing to No. 1 North Carolina and No. 6 Duke.
Appling had 12 points, while Wood added nine, including the Spartans' first two 3-point baskets in a 32-22 first half.
After quick starts in both halves, Michigan State had stretches of sloppy play and seemed lethargic compared to its energy in Friday's 76-41 win over Texas Southern.
Arkansas-Little Rock (2-3) was led by Will Neighbour with 11 points and 12 rebounds.
