IU falls to No. 3 Michigan State

EAST LANSING, Mich. – Indiana couldn't keep Michigan State's Gary Harris at bay for two halves.

Harris scored 20 of his game-high 24 points in the second half as the No. 3 Spartans defeated the Hoosiers 71-66 Tuesday night at the Breslin Center.

IU pushed Michigan State for the first 30 minutes, taking a 46-41 lead with 11:56 to play. But then the Spartans took over.

Michigan State outscored IU 21-6 over the next 7 ½ minutes to take a 62-52 lead with 4:29 to play, and the Hoosiers could never get the lead back.

Yogi Ferrell scored 19 for the Hoosiers (12-7, 2-4 Big Ten), and Noah Vonleh, who was named the Big Ten freshman of the week Tuesday afternoon, finished with 13 points and 13 rebounds.

IU was without senior Will Sheehey, who injured his ankle against Northwestern.

But the Hoosiers have the services of sophomore Jeremy Hollowell again. The forward didn't play in the previous three games as coach Tom Crean said he needed to regain his "focus."

Hollowell played 15 minutes, scoring 8 points on 2-of-3 shooting and grabbing two rebounds.

Branden Dawson scored 13 for Michigan State (18-1, 7-0), and Denzel Valentine and Travis Trice each had 10 as the Spartans won for the 11th straight time.

The Spartans were without senior forward Adreian Payne for a fourth straight game. Payne is sidelined with a sprained right foot.
