Keith Appling came off the bench to score 17 points and Denzel Valentine and Travis Trice added 15 apiece Friday to power Michigan State to a 98-65 victory over Mount St. Mary's and help the Spartans continue their domination of non-conference opponents at home during November.

The last time the Spartans (7-0) lost at home in November was to a David Robinson-led Navy team on Nov. 29, 1986. Michigan State has won 74 straight games against unranked non-conference opponents at home.

Michigan State - which is off to its best start since opening the 2000-01 season with a 12-0 mark - did not start Appling, Adreian Payne and Branden Dawson due to "classroom attendance issues."
