No. 18 Indiana holds off No. 5 Michigan St. 70-55

Posted: Updated:

Cody Zeller scored 18 points and Victor Oladipo added 13, giving No. 18 Indiana a 70-55 victory over No. 5 Michigan State on Tuesday night.

The Hoosiers (23-7, 10-7 Big Ten) became the second team in less than a week to beat three top five teams this season.

Kansas also achieved a feat only one other Indiana team had done since 1948-49.

Draymond Green had 29 points for Michigan State (24-6, 13-4), which had won seven straight and was trying to clinch its second outright league title in four seasons.

The Hoosiers used a 12-2 run to build an 18-8 lead.

Michigan State never got closer than four points the rest of the way.

It was Indiana coach Tom Crean's first victory against his former boss, Tom Izzo.
