IU's Oladipo ready to play

Indiana should have one of its top players when the Hoosiers travel to play Michigan State on Tuesday.

Indiana coach Tom Crean said during Monday's Big Ten teleconference that he expects junior guard Victor Oladipo to be ready to play when the Hoosiers (23-2, 11-2) play the Spartans (22-4, 11-2).

Oladipo sprained his left ankle in Indiana's 83-55 home win over Purdue on Saturday. He did not play in the second half against the Boilermakers.

"We practiced some (Sunday), and he went through that. He's doing a great job of rehabilitating it … and I think it is getting better," Crean said. "I don't anticipate that he won't be ready to go (Tuesday) night."

Oladipo is Indiana's second-leading scorer, averaging 13.8 points. He leads the team in steals with 59.
