Michigan State basketball vs. Indiana: Stream, broadcast info, three things to watch, prediction
Michigan State basketball hosts Indiana in an important Big Ten matchup on Tuesday, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.
The Spartans look to bounce back from a tough loss against rival Michigan on Saturday night. Michigan State is 16-10 overall and 8-7 in conference.
Indiana is looking to build upon its recent hot stretch. The Hoosiers have won nine of their last 11 games, which included a double-digit victory over the Spartans in the teams’ first meeting. Indiana is 19-8 overall and 10-6.
This will be the first home game for Michigan State since last week’s tragic on-campus shooting that left three students dead and five others injured.

Three Things to Watch
Here are three things to watch out for in this matchup between Michigan State and Indiana:
What’s MSU have left in the tank?: It’s been a long and emotionally taxing nine days for the Spartans. That included an inspired performance against rival Michigan on Saturday that came up just short in the final minutes. So now, the question is what will Michigan State have left in the tank in yet another emotional game — its first at home since the on-campus shooting?
Continuing to find Hauser shots: Joey Hauser has become the Spartans’ go-to scorer in the past three games, reaching more than 20 points in each game. He’s been consistent all season for the Spartans and needs to remain an elite scorer in this matchup for Michigan State to get the victory.
Containing Trayce Jackson-Davis: Jackson-Davis played a massive role in the Hoosiers’ victory over the Spartans earlier this year, dropping 31 points and grabbing 15 rebounds. He has been arguably the best player in the Big Ten all season, so I’m not expecting Michigan State to shut him down, but it will need to do a better job limiting him if it is going to come out on top.
Prediction: Indiana 71, MSU 67
Michigan State came out firing against Michigan and played inspired ball against its rivals. I worry that they mentally put a lot into that performance, and we are looking at a hangover game. Given Indiana is playing really good ball lately, I, unfortunately, am taking the Hoosiers to win this matchup.
