Video: Indiana Overcomes Draymond Green’s 29, Downs Michigan State

scored 29 points on Tuesday night, accounting for more than half of Michigan State’s 55-point output for the game, but that wasn’t enough to help the Spartans past Indiana. The Hoosiers pulled off the upset, 70-55, giving them their third win over a top-five team this season — Indiana previously knocked off then-No. 1 Kentucky and then-No. 2 Ohio State in Bloomington.

Green finished 10-of-17 from the field and picked up a team-best eight rebounds, but he also coughed up six turnovers. He didn’t get much help from his Spartans teammates, either. ’s eight points made him MSU’s second-leading scorer and added six.

Five Hoosiers, meanwhile, reached double digits, paced by Cody Zeller’s 18.

Indiana’s win prevented Michigan State from locking up an outright Big Ten title. The Spartans clinched at least a share of the conference crown this weekend, thanks to Michigan’s loss to Purdue and Ohio State’s loss to Wisconsin. They still have ample chances to lock up that solo title — if Michigan loses either of its final two games (at Illinois, at Penn State), it will be eliminated; Ohio State must beat Northwestern on the road, then win at Michigan State on Sunday.
