— Michigan State seniors Kalisha Keane and Brittney Thomas weren’t about to let a prime opportunity slip away.

Keane scored 27 points and Thomas added 19 to help the 11th-ranked Spartans beat Illinois 69-56 Sunday and clinch a share of the Big Ten title, their first since 2005.

The Spartans (24-3, 12-2 Big Ten) have secured the top seed for the Big Ten tournament. They maintained a 1˝-game lead ahead of Penn State and can secure the outright title with a victory against Ohio State on Thursday.
