Hoosiers' Paint Presence the Key to Win over MSU

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - They went into the paint. Then they went into the paint again. Then again. Then again.

Indiana attacked the basket over and over again vs. Michigan State, outscoring the Spartans 34-18 in the paint en route to a 67-63 win over the Spartans.

IU has struggled mightily from the perimeter this season, coming into the battle with MSU shooting less than 30 percent from 3-point range. The Hoosiers have been at their best when they are running the offense through their bigs or driving to the basket, and they put on a clinic when it comes to feeding the post.
