The Indiana Hoosiers showed why they are the #1 team and the favorite to win this year’s NCAA Championship in March Madness as they went into a hostile Breslin Center and stopped Michigan State’s 17 game home winning streak 72-68. The game marked the first time two top-five teams have met at the Breslin Center.
The Hoosiers did something the rest of the Big Ten teams have tried and failed miserably, ask the Michigan Wolverines if they have recovered from their beating last week (they lost to the Spartans by 23, (75-52).
The Hoosiers kept using an in and out game led by Jr. Victor Oladipo who’s three point play (a put back dunk and free throw) in the final minute sealed the victory for Indiana.
Oladipo who was questionable for the game after suffering a ankle injury in their last game vs. Purdue was the man tonight as he finished with 19 points (on 7-11 shooting, 4-4 free throws) 9 rebounds, 5 steals and a block shot.
Helping out was pre-season Wooden Award favorite Cody ...

The chaplain for Michigan State's football team posted a tweet on Tuesday in advance of the Spartans-Hoosiers basketball game that is sure to stir up some controversy.
EAST LANSING — Unfortunately for Michigan State basketball fans, there won’t be a “R.I.P ta da competition” popping up on your timeline tonight, a phrase that senior Derrick Nix tweets after every MSU victory. However, one thing Spartan fans did get tonight is one of the best basketball games of the season, even if it wasn’t in MSU’s favor.
Led by Victor Oladipo’s 19...
Disclaimer: I find it pretty ridiculous that I am writing these words. I find it even more outrageous that I spent a good portion of my afternoon watching a nine-second video over and over and over again to try to determine if Derrick Nix did or did not hit Indiana’s Cody Zeller on purpose Tuesday night.
But with that being said, it’s an interesting topic for debate the day after...
Indiana found itself down four points with under two minutes to play, but escaped East Lansing with its first victory since 1991 because it out-executed the Spartans down the stretch.

Tonight, the Michigan St Spartans host the Indiana Hoosiers in what is being billed as the biggest game of the year in the B1G, until next week. Anyway, Sparty fans are pretty pumped up about this game, and their fans are taking to Twitter, even priests. This is an actual tweet by Father Joseph Krupp of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Hillsdale, MI. It isn’t the best usage...

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.
Watch and listen to their postgame comments in the embedded media players below:
EAST LANSING, Mich. On two legs, Victor Oladipo might be the best player in college basketball.
As it turns out, the Indiana junior guard isn't bad on one leg, either.
Playing on a sprained ankle, Oladipo capped a big game by scoring six points in the final 45 seconds, allowing top-ranked Indiana to escape with its first win at Michigan State in 22 years, 72-68 on Tuesday...
