Michigan State wins but Miles Bridges leaves game early with injury
Miles Bridges scored 20 points before limping off the court after injuring his right ankle, but No. 2 Michigan State beat Stony Brook 93-71 on Sunday night at East Lansing, Mich.
Bridges was fouled with 8 minutes 32 seconds to play. After trying to stay in the game to shoot free throws, he went back to the bench briefly before walking toward the locker room.
“Thank God it’s not a high-ankle sprain,” coach Tom Izzo said. “It’s just a sprain where he rolled it. He’ll be day to day.”
Nick Ward scored a season-high 22 points for the Spartans (2-1), who trailed 22-15 midway through the first half.
Elijah Olaniyi scored 16 points for the Seawolves (0-4).
“By Tuesday morning, I’ll know more,” Izzo said. “Miles is tough enough to play through it but we’re not going to take any chances.”
