Michigan State Basketball silences doubters, crush Indiana

Michigan State Basketball silences doubters, crush Indiana

The IU women's basketball team huddles with Coach Teri Moren before facing Southern University.

No. 9 MSU successfully rebounded from their disappointing home loss to rival MI last week, blowing out IN, 85-57, Friday night at the Breslin Center.

After falling to the Spartans, 68-46, at Assembly Hall on December 28, the 8-12 Hoosiers will look to redeem themselves in East Lansing, Michigan, on Saturday. That's the most for a Michigan State freshman, surpassing the 64 from Deyonta Davis in 2015-16.

The Hoosiers hit 33.9 percent of their shots from the field including 8-of-26 from 3-point range.

The Spartans are in the midst of a three-game "slump" which has resulted in a 1-2 record and the lone win being an overtime triumph over Rutgers at home.

"Everything was a struggle the first time around", IU Coach Teri Moren said. I'll be honest with you, I thought we'd probably drop into maybe 20th with the two losses. "But we're not as good as some will make us out to be".

Senior forward Amanda Cahill said the team has been working on getting into their offense much quicker and making better decisions on what is a good shot and what is a bad shot.

The Spartans have a balanced scoring attack, led by 6-foot-4 junior and Bedford, Indiana, native Jenna Allen. In that Wolverines game, Spartans guard Miles Bridges put up 19 points and six rebounds.

All you can see are the shorts being sported by Cassius Winston during shootaround, but it seems as if the actual jersey will be black with neon green writing.

The Hoosiers entered the game riding a three-game winning streak, but Bridges scored 22 points on 9-of-13 shooting to end their run. Michigan State was also dominant inside, scoring 38 points in the paint to 18 for in while handing out 23 assists.

Robbi Ryan scored 16 for Arizona State but missed what would have been a game-tying 3-pointer in the final seconds. The game can also be heard on Sirius/XM and Internet 81.

An unimpressive start to the season for much of the Big Ten has made it hard for some of the league's emerging talent to stand out.

To build on the Purdue victory, IU followed that up with a down to the wire 84-79 loss at No. 23 MI. The previous low had been a 21-point loss to Indiana State in a 90-69 home loss in the season opener November 10. The Scarlet Knights received devastating news on Saturday when it was announced that senior guard Mike Williams (22.1 minutes per game, 9.2 points, 4.2 rebounds) would be out indefinitely with a leg injury.

While this was most certainly an absolute thrashing, IN has had little success IN East Lansing, losing 20 of its last 21 games at the Breslin Center. This was a team that looked like they felt a bit unfairly discredited and looked down upon, and came out tonight wanting to show those doubters how much that has fueled them. "Just really, really impressive". "It's just a matter of time". We are right there.
