EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) – Tom Izzo put it best.

“It doesn’t get any better or bigger than this,” the Michigan State coach said.

Izzo’s fourth-ranked Spartans will host the No. 1 Indiana Hoosiers – led by his former assistant and good friend, Tom Crean. Tuesday night’s game marks the first time two top-five teams have met at the Breslin Center.

It’s the third matchup of top-four teams in college basketball this season, and the second for Indiana, which beat then top-ranked Michigan. It’s just the fourth with a pair of Big Ten teams since 1997, according to STATS LLC.

First place in the Big Ten – and perhaps top seeding in next month’s NCAA tournament – will be at stake with four games remaining in the regular season after this matchup.
