Indiana picked up its third quadrant one win on Thursday night, a 67-63 triumph over Michigan State at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall. The victory improved the Hoosiers to 15-4 overall and 5-3 in the Big Ten.
Here are five takeaways from the win over the Spartans:
· Indiana dominates Michigan State in the paint: It’s one thing to dominate teams like Nebraska and Northwestern in the paint.
It’s another to dominate a perennial Big Ten power known for its rebounding, toughness and ability to score in paint like Michigan State.
But that’s exactly what Indiana did on Thursday night at Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall.
