Michigan State has its hands full with 15th-seeded Bradley midway through the first half of its NCAA Tournament game in Des Moines, Iowa.


Darrell Brown's 3-pointer gave the Braves of the Missouri Valley Conference a six-point lead less than four minutes into the game. The Spartans used a 9-0 run to take the lead,  but Brown hit a deep 3-pointer to tie it at 18-all.


Michigan State lost to Middle Tennessee as a No. 2 seed in 2016. The Spartans haven't made it past the second round in three appearances since 2015.
