Posted: Saturday, March 10, 2012 --- 3:00p.m.

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- Draymond Green scored 14 points and had 16 rebounds Saturday to lead No. 8 Michigan State past No. 14 Wisconsin 65-52 in the Big Ten tournament semifinals.

It's the first time the Spartans (26-7) will play for the league's postseason title since 2000.

Next up is either No. 7 Ohio State or No. 10 Michigan, which both shared the regular-season title with Michigan State.

Wisconsin (24-9) was led by Jordan Taylor with 19 points and Ryan Evans with 18, but couldn't avoid their third loss of the season to the Spartans.

Michigan State rallied from a 20-9 first-half deficit to take a 35-25 halftime lead, then extended the margin to 19 early in the second half. It sealed the win with a late 13-2 run.
