The Michigan State Show heads back on tour Sunday to take on Indiana and standout forward Trayce Jackson-Davis, one of the early contenders for Big Ten Player of the Year. The Spartans will make their first appearance in Bloomington, Indiana, since February 2021, the first of three straight wins over the Hoosiers.
MSU is trying to stay on the right side of .500 in conference play as it nears the midpoint of the Big Ten schedule. The Spartans lost a point to Purdue on Monday before bouncing back with a 13-point triumph over Rutgers on Thursday. Indiana has won its last two games, beating Wisconsin at home and Illinois on the road.

MSU has already visited two of the Big Ten’s more challenging venues and has done well, beating Wisconsin — albeit without top scorer Tyler Wahl — at the Kohl Center and getting away with a close game in Illinois. Though the Spartans have considerable experience — with a fifth-grader, a true senior, two juniors and a sophomore in the wings — they need to be aware of the atmosphere they’ll be entering at Assembly Hall, MSU head coach Tom Izzo and said noted that his staff planned to engage with the environment during their preparation.
“Indiana, especially after their win (Thursday), I think this place is going to rock like no other,” Izzo said. “That’s the beauty of the Big Ten, but we have a lot of places that we’re going to go that are going to be like that. We’ll try to bring in the noise of the crowd (Saturday). We’ll try to do some things to prepare them. Thank god we weren’t easy places to play in Wisconsin, Illinois. Yes, that’s always a problem, especially when you’ve got one of those bad starts that we’ve had at home, so I think the thing is going to be tripled. We have to make sure that doesn’t happen.”
MSU and Indiana will wrap up their regular season series on February 21 at the Breslin Center.
