Here's what Michigan State coach Tom Izzo said about Indiana during Monday's Big Ten teleconference. The Hoosiers face the Spartans at 7 p.m. Tuesday at Assembly Hall.
"I think (Indiana coach Tom Crean has) done an incredible job. The injury that they had losing one of their top players (Maurice Creek) early has affected them some. But still, they could have beat Purdue, they could have beat Illinois. There are a lot of games they could have.
"They go through the stretches where young kids can get up and down. They are usually better at home than they are on the road. I go in there hoping we play well, but know his team is going to play hard and the place is going to be nuts."
