Michigan State says Dawson questionable for finale

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) Michigan State says senior Branden Dawson is questionable for Saturday's regular-season finale at Indiana.

Dawson appeared to be hit in the head during a scramble for a rebound in the first half of Wednesday night's win over Purdue, and coach Tom Izzo said the 6-foot-6 forward was not in good shape at halftime. Dawson didn't play in the second half, although he did come out to the court for senior night festivities after the game.

Dawson is averaging 11.6 points and 9.3 rebounds this season.
