Michigan State's Nia Clouden makes history against FGCU
While Michigan State ended up losing to Florida Gulf Coast 85-84 on Monday, Nia Clouden broke the school record for most points scored in a game.
Clouden went 17-for-28 scoring 50 points in the overtime loss to FGCU, and was also 15-for-17 from the free-throw line. It was an incredible performance on the road for the Michigan State star.
Spartans, give it up for @niaclouden for:
1. Breaking a school record
2. Being third overall player in the B1G to score 50 points
3. Scoring the most points in the NCAA this season so far
