Lucky for the Spartans, Wednesday brought another game to redeem the hard fought loss from Tuesday night.
Led by Kalin Lucas's 28-point effort, Michigan State got back to winning basketball in their final game of the Maui Invitational.
While the Spartans found a way to turn away a pesky Washington team, it was play by another guard that has some scratching their head. Washington's Isaiah Thomas and Justin Holiday scored in double figures with Thomas also tossing out six assists on the night.
Matt Bryan-Amaning was top scorer for the Huskies with 15 points and 6 rebounds.
One area of improvement for the Spartans was hitting the boards as MSU out rebounded the Huskies 31-27 on the night.
Michigan State returns to the mainland and will take on Tennessee Tech on Sunday at 1:00 pm (EST) at home.
