EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) - Durrell Summers scored a season-high 25, leading the 14th-ranked Spartans to a 90-51 win Saturday night over Prairie View A&M.
Michigan State freshman Keith Appling scored five of his seven points early in the game, but didn't play in the second half because he was dizzy, Montgomery said.
Trant Simpson scored 17 and Demondre Chapman of Flint had 13 points for the Panthers (2-10) from the Southwestern Athletic Conference. The Texas-based school extended the longest nonconference road losing streak in Division I basketball, dropping its 64th straight since a win at Houston in 2002.
Michigan State, meanwhile, won its 52nd straight game at home against nonconference teams - dating to a loss to Duke in 2003 - and that streak will be tested Wednesday night against No. 22 Texas at the Breslin Center.
Michigan State has won two straight after losing three of six games to Connecticut, at Duke and against Syracuse.
The Spartans, playing for the first time in a week, looked fresh and focused from the start against Prairie View.
Michigan State scored the first seven points of the game, quickly built and maintained a double-digit lead and was ahead 42-27 at halftime. Summers' slam gave the Spartans a 30-point lead midway through the second half and they cruised to the easy victory.
