Derrick Nix versus Cody Zeller was the 1-on-1 matchup to watch going into Tuesday night's Spartans-Hoosiers duel.

The Indiana Hoosiers didn't stumble as the top-ranked team Tuesday night during a 72-68 victory over the No. 4-ranked Michigan State Spartans, winning at the Breslin Center in East Lansing for the first time since 1991. 

The Hoosiers proved by going on the road and downing Tom Izzo's Spartans (11-3, 22-5) that they are indeed the kings of the Big Ten. With first place on the line, Tom Crean's crew came through under pressure when it mattered most, moving to 12-2 in league play and 24-3 overall.

The Hoosiers did that. 

Let's take a look at 10 lessons that Indiana's win over Michigan State taught us on this Tuesday night.
