What you need to know about Indiana
IU beat Minnesota 82-72 on Wednesday. IU got double-digit scores from five players: forward Trayce Jackson-Davis (20), guard Aljami Durham (16), forward Jerome Hunter (16), guard Armaan Franklin (11), and guard Rob Phinisee (10).
Jackson-Davis continues to be the driving force offensively for the Hoosiers. He's averaging 19.6 points and 9.4 rebounds per game in his sophomore season. However, getting outside scoring from Franklin (12.2 ppg) and Durham (11.4 ppg) will continue to be critical for Indiana as well.
What you need to know about Michigan State
Meanwhile, the Spartans came up short against the Purdue Boilermakers on Tuesday, falling 75-65. Guard Joshua Langford wasn't much of a difference maker for MSU, finishing with only nine points on 3-for-11 shooting in his 32 minutes on the court.
Michigan State lost the turnover battle 16-6 in that game and that's been a recurring theme for the Spartans, as they've lost or tied in the turnover category in nine consecutive games. Aaron Henry will have to take better care of the basketball while continuing to stuff the stat sheet. He's averaging 14.3 points, 5.5 rebounds and 3.5 assists per game this season.
