Smith helps Indiana top No. 6 Michigan State 63-62

Michigan State guard Kyle Ahrens celebrates after a basket during the second half of their Big Ten basketball game against Ohio State at the Breslin Center in East Lansing on Sunday

Indiana's season has pretty much gone the opposite of Michigan State's.

Indiana University head basketball coach Archie Miller met with the media after a 63-62 win over Michigan State on Saturday afternoon. 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. Big Ten player of the year candidate Cassius Winston was able to dice up the IN defense, scoring himself and finding the open man leading Michigan State to shoot 60% from the field IN the first half. Spartans last 5 games have all resulted in victories and they would like to continue their winning run further into the season. The game is going to be played in Assembly Hall, the home of the Indiana Hoosiers mens basketball team.

Michigan State led by double digits early in the second half, but the Hoosiers came back until Indiana's Juwan Morgan made an and-one with 1:46 left to give in its first lead since the opening minute of the game. The Spartans sit at the top of the Big Ten, starting to win impressive games even without Joshua Langford and Nick Ward. Michigan State's shot accuracy and free throw ability suffered last time, so expect to see improvements on offense.

Better offensive production is vital for IN to get passed Michigan State.

This is the toughest fight Askren's career to date and one where a lot of questions will be answered. Even so, many observers believe he is the most gifted MMA fighter to ever set foot in the cage.

McQuaid was questionable with an ankle injury but played 36 minutes. They've won five straight games, including last Sunday's wild win at MI, stunning their rivals on the road.

Only four rebounds and three assists between them as well, and three of each of those have come from Morgan. The Hoosiers need another strong offensive presence like Morgan or Langford to take control.

IN stunned MSU with a 79-75 overtime thriller at the Breslin Center on February 2, the exclamation point on the Spartans' season-long, three-game losing streak. If the Hoosiers come out on top on Saturday, they will begin their first winning streak since December 1, where they won seven straight. Michigan State, meanwhile, still has to play No. 9 Michigan in a huge rivalry game at home to end the regular season.

Spartans run out of gas against Hoosiers. To make up for the lack of production, Devonte Green stepped up having one of his best conference games on the year. Their record in the Big Ten has also been mint, they have won 14 games and have just lost 3 and sit on top of the league.
