EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The freshmen trio of Aerial Powers, Tori Jankoska and Branndais Agee anchored a running game and full-court press Thursday night that powered No. 19 Michigan State to a 102-54 win over Canisius in the first-ever contest between the teams. Powers led the Spartans (1-1) with 19 points and Agee added 14 points and eight rebounds. Jankoska turned in an all-around performance with 17 points, five rebounds and three assists. Klarissa Bell had nine rebounds. Michigan State took an early lead and never trailed, deploying a fast-paced offense that went rim to rim and out-rebounding Canisius 45-21. The Spartans' full-court press defense shut down the Golden Griffins offense and held scoring threat Jamie Ruttle to a single point. Jen Morabito and Emily Weber each scored 12 points for Canisius (1-1). With the win the Spartans have won 14 of their last 15 home openers.
