Indiana’s Cody Zeller is having an All-American season. He has been the co-MVP on the nation’s best team. He’s averaging 17 and 8 and had a large hand in Indiana’s win over Michigan State in East Lansing Tuesday. Aside from the 17 points and five rebounds weren’t all he contributed.
Watch the next two clips and you’ll see that Zeller is a dirty, cheap player. In the first clip, there was 4:10 left on the clock Tuesday. Zeller deliberately tossed his elbow into MSU center Derrick Nix’s midsection to clear room. Ask Nix how high his voice went.

Great game last night to say the least between the #1 ranked Indiana Hoosiers and the #4 ranked Michigan State Spartans. Victor Oladipo lead the way for the Hoosiers with a couple big plays down the stretch, and dropped 19 points in their 72-68 win over Michigan State.
Derrick Nix vs. Cody Zeller might have been even more interesting than the game itself. Both players gave...
EAST LANSING, Mich. — Victor Oladipo (19 points, nine rebounds, five steals), Cody Zeller (17 points, five rebounds, two blocks), Christian Watford (12 points) and Jordan Hulls (12 points) met with the media following Indiana’s 72-68 win at Michigan State on Tuesday.

Tuesday night in East Lansing, the polls have decided history will be in the making. The Indiana Hoosiers make their first trip to Michigan ranked as the number one team in the land. Not far behind them, the Michigan State Spartans will enter the ring ranked fourth.
It’s the first time the Breslin Center has seen a top five match up in the building’s existence. A month ago, Michigan...
