There were a few questions swirling around Indiana University and whether or not they were for real heading into Big Ten play.
After tonight's 80-65 loss to Michigan State, there may be a few more questions.
It was obvious that going on the road to MSU for the opener and without Will Sheehey was going to be tough. Any Tom Izzo team is going to play hard-nosed defense and rebound the ball.
They did more then just that tonight, as IU struggled to find a consistent rhythm on offense. Penetration was difficult to come by, Cody Zeller was non-existent and Jordan Hulls had an all around off night.
The biggest question at this moment is, how will they bounce back against OSU on New Year's Eve at home?
Here are some of the things I noticed after IU suffered their first loss of the season tonight.
