Michigan State basketball: Big Ten title hopes potentially dashed at Indiana

Michigan State basketball: Big Ten title hopes potentially dashed at Indiana

Michigan State will have history on their side in their quest to avoid a sweep at the hands of in, as the Hoosiers have only swept the season series once (2012-2013) since the 1990-1991 season. In its last matchup, IN was able to hold Michigan State to zero points for seven minutes IN the first half, but the Spartans picked it up to get a three-point lead going into halftime.

Winston led Michigan State with 20 points and 11 assists.

In fact, the junior point guard seemed to be the only means of offense for a long stretch and he was getting worn down by constant double-teams, hedges on screens and stifling defense by Rob Phinisee. That win gives the Hoosiers a season sweep over the Spartans, a potential top-2 seed in the tournament, which is a massive boost to their resume.

"Both guys (Morgan and Langford), they're on the scouting report", IN coach Archie Miller said.

If the Hoosiers can sweep the remaining two games, then make some mild noise in the league tournament, in might find itself receiving a pair of dancing slippers. The other Hoosier to watch is senior forward Juwan Morgan (14.9 ppg, 8.3 rpg), whose 15 rebounds helped the Hoosiers to their win over Wisconsin. Big Ten rival Purdue also congratulated IN on the victory, as the Spartans' defeat gives the Boilermakers sole possession of first place IN conference standings.

Now it's locked in on Michigan State vs. Indiana. And though fortune hasn't favored the Hoosiers as of late, forward Kenny Goins said Assembly Hall is one of the hardest, most hostile places, the Spartans can play.

McQuaid was questionable with an ankle injury but played 36 minutes.

Hello and welcome to today's live updates page for the men's basketball game between IU and No. 6 Michigan State. Very active in his 13 minutes, Morgan finished with five points and six rebounds.

In a game that went to overtime, IN was IN control of the game for most of final 10 minutes of the second half, but were not able to convert a last second shot by Romeo Langford. The Hoosiers need another strong offensive presence like Morgan or Langford to take control.

The Hoosiers weren't the only ones celebrating on Saturday.

Spartans coach Tom Izzo isn't anxious about taking revenge against the Hoosiers on Saturday.

Remarkably, we are more than a quarter of the way into the game and Justin Smith is the only IU player who has made a field goal. Even at 14-14, they still have an outside shot of making an appearance in the NCAA Tournament, especially if they can find a way to win this game.
