1. Albeit it was at home, and the atmosphere at the Breslin Center is one of the intimidating in college basketball for the opposition, but the Hoosiers know they can beat the Spartans. They did so earlier this season.

2. Indiana has a good inside game. Cody Zeller is among the best big men in the nation. He might even be the best.

3. Tom Crean, Indiana’s coach, understands exactly what his team is facing tonight. He was Tom Izzo’s top assistant at MSU. If the Hoosiers lose, it won’t be because they flinched. The Wolverines should have played last Tuesday’s game in all white because they performed like human surrender flags.
