Indiana 72, Michigan State 68: the Breslin drought is over!

Gregory Shamus

Indiana wins in East Lansing for the first time since 1991.

Twenty two years. Seventeen games. The last time IU won at East Lansing, I was a 16 year old high school junior. After the heartache of the 2000 and 2002 and 2011 games, it's finally over. Indiana has won at the Breslin Center for the first time since 1991. And it couldn't have come at a better time. The 2011 game would have been fun but ultimately meaningless. This game gives IU sole possession of the Big Ten lead, and gives the Hoosiers a realistic chance of clinching the outright Big Ten title before they even play the season finale at Ann Arbor. Over the past 20 years, how many times has IU lost a game like that. I thought IU had no chance when it was 66-63, but the Hoosiers hung in and got a great win. Austan will be around later with a true recap, but for now, let's enjoy it. Indiana 72, Michigan State 68. In East Lansing.
