Michigan State is going to have to play its best basketball if it is going to win this game in Bloomington.
But Tom Izzo's club has been playing great as of late, and one of the reasons why is because there aren't any big egos on this team.
Every player on this Michigan State's team has a role, and if each one of those players can fulfill their given role in this matchup, then there is no doubt that Tom Izzo's team can win this basketball game.
First off, the Spartans need to cut down on the turnovers. This is something that hurt them early on this season, but they have cut down on the turnovers as of late, which has resulted in six straight Big Ten wins.
Another thing MSU has to do is contain Cody Zeller, who has been playing great basketball as of late. If the combination of Derrick Nix and Adreian Payne can hold Zeller in check, then MSU can win this game.
The final thing that MSU has to do in order to win this game is to get solid offensive production from multiple players. Keith Appling has been very good over the past couple of games, but the Spartans need at least one other player to step up on the offensive end against Indiana.
Garry Harris, Branden Dawson, Adreian Payne and Derrick Nix are all capable of taking over a game on the offensive end.
If they can all play well in this one, then you have to like Sparty's chances.
