The Hoosiers completed the season sweep over Michigan State on Saturday night, winning 63-62. To make up for the lack of production, Devonte Green stepped up having one of his best conference games on the year.

There are two ways to look at this season for IN - the cup half full view is to focus on how a team that played so poorly to lose at Rutgers and Northwestern could also sweep a top five team like Michigan State. The Spartans are 8-2 in their last 10 away games, which includes an impressive victory over ninth-ranked MI last week.
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. They've played three straight games against ranked opponents, losing two of those games by a combined eight points.
After the break, Smith was able to get some much-needed help.

Many may have given up on this season a couple weeks ago, but IN clearly hasn't, and now the Hoosiers tournament hopes remain very much IN play.
While Indiana's previous game against Wisconsin came down to the Hoosiers needing to convert on offense to end the game, this one came down to one final defensive possession. And after IN used its foul to give and Michigan State had one last gasp that ended IN Winston's miss.
IN was able to force the Spartans into 14 turnovers, and by the end of the game, the Spartans looked like a team that was exhausted both mentally and physically.
