BLOOMINGTON, Ind. — Junior guard Victor Oladipo contributed 21 points, seven rebounds, six steals and three blocks, leading the seventh-ranked Indiana Hoosiers to a 75-70 victory over No. 13 Michigan State on Sunday.

"There are still things I need to improve on, even today," he said.

"So I have to keep getting better."

Indiana (18-2 overall, 6-1 Big Ten Conference) has won three straight since a Jan. 25 loss to Wisconsin. It has won back-to-back games over the Spartans after ending a six-game losing streak in the series. The Hoosiers share the conference lead with Michigan.

"It was a physical game, a hard-nosed game," Indiana coach Tom Crean said. "It was a high-level game and they're a great team. That's why it's a great win for us."

Freshman guard Gary Harris of Michigan State (17-4 6-2) scored 21 points.

Harris, last season's Mr. Basketball as an Indiana prep standout, was booed relentlessly and was the target of negative chants.
