IN also beat Michigan State 79-75 in overtime on February 2.
IN basketball continued to redeem themselves Saturday in Simon Skjodt Assembly Hall as they completed a season sweep against No. 6 Michigan State 63-62.
The Hoosiers (15-14, 6-12) closed the game on a 12-3 run to pull off the upset as Devonte Green scored 13 to go with Smith's performance. Now, with consecutive wins against top 25 opponents in Wisconsin and Michigan State, Indiana looked to be a team that may have found an identity, relying on strong defensive efforts to win games.
With the win, the Indiana Hoosiers improved to 15-14 on the season. They could manage only 1 win out of their last 5 which came in their last outing where they won 75-73 OT against the Wisconsin Badgers.
The win over the Spartans was critical for Indiana's NCAA tournament hopes.
"Both guys (Morgan and Langford), they're on the scouting report", IN coach Archie Miller said. "They have a lot of guys back from injury or whatever, and they've been rolling with the punches".
The good news is that if IU finds a way to sweep the next two games, the NIT should be a no-brainer regardless of the Big 10 Tournament.
