EAST LANSING – Michigan State basketball returns home for the first of three games in the next six days. First, the Spartans host Indiana on Tuesday, March 2 at 8 p.m.
MSU is coming off a 73-55 loss at Maryland but has won three of their last four contests, including victories over Illinois and Ohio State, both AP Top 5 teams.
"It was just disappointing that we started out like we did," Michigan State head coach Tom Izzo said. "Also disappointing that we finished like we did because it looks like a blowout. If they think the NET is the thing to do and it makes a difference. I just so disagree with that. But we didn't do our job; we didn't win the game. Goals haven't changed."
The Spartans enter Tuesday night 13-10 overall and 7-10 in the Big Ten, while Indiana, which has lost its previous three games, is 12-12 (7-10 B1G).
A win against the Hoosiers will go a long way in putting Michigan State in the field of 68 teams for the NCAA Tournament.
