With the team’s second game in a row at home, the No. 17 Michigan State Spartans are set to take on the Indiana Hoosiers today at 3:30 p.m. EST at the Breslin Center in East Lansing. The Spartans are just coming off of a loss against the Wisconsin Badgers on Tuesday night in which they never held the lead.
While the Spartans have been struggling as of late, the Indiana Hoosiers have had a bit of their own problems during the team’s last game against Northwestern. Before the game it was announced that five players would be suspended from the contest due to “violation of team rules”. The shorthanded team ended the game with a loss to Northwestern. It has since been announced already that all five players have been reinstated for this matchup against Michigan State.
