EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Lykendra Johnson had 20 points and 17 rebounds to help No. 12 Michigan State beat Minnesota 66-54 Sunday and continue the best start in school history.

Johnson had a double-double by halftime with 10 points and 10 rebounds, then doubled her point total and matched her season-bests in both for the first-place Spartans (18-2, 6-1 Big Ten).

Kalisha Keane had 14 points, and Cetera Washington added 10 points and eight rebounds in Michigan State’s 17th straight win in Breslin Center.

Kiara Buford scored 24 points for the last-place Golden Gophers (8-12, 0-7), who twice cut a 12-point halftime deficit to five before the Spartans got going in the final minutes.
