Highlights: No. 1 Michigan State Spartans drop Portland Pilots

Check out the most jaw-dropping plays as the newly-anointed No. 1 Michigan State Spartans dropped the Portland Pilots 82-67 on Monday.

The Michigan State Spartans took a while to get going, but woke up in the final 12 minutes to push past the Portland Pilots. On the same day the Spartans were ranked No. 1 in the country in the Associated Press Poll -- it is the first time in more than a decade they've received the top ranking -- Tom Izzo's squad rode a career-high 25 points from point guard Keith Appling to victory.
