Romeo Langford had the go-ahead three-pointer to beat the shot clock buzzer in overtime, as the Hoosiers put an end to their seven-game losing streak. They were coming off a tough loss top the Rutgers Scarlet Knights, but are now 4-7 in conference play and 13-9 overall. Their recent skid was their longest losing streak in eight years, but they took down a top-10 team away from home for the first time since beating No. 7 Michigan in 2013. This was the third ranked win for Hoosiers head coach Archie Miller in his second season with the team, as the other such victories came against No. 18 Notre Dame last season and No. 24 Marquette last November. He is 29-24 overall as the Hoosiers head man.
The Spartans were led by Cassius Winston's 26 points, as his late three-pointer in overtime cut the deficit to one, but his drive to the basket late was blocked away by Indiana. The Hoosier did what MSU could not, and that's hit free throws as time expired to seal the win. The Hoosiers will return home to host the Hawkeyes on Thursday, while the Spartans will visit the Illinois Fighting Illini on Tuesday.
