No. 24 Spartans Get Past Hoosiers On Monday Night

 

EAST LANSING, Mich.  – Indiana had three players in double figures but couldn’t overcome No. 24 Michigan State, 77-61, on Monday night at Breslin Center.

 

KEY MOMENTS

  • Freshman guard Grace Berger had six points at the media timeout in the first quarter with IU leading 10-7, but in what would be a game of runs, the Spartans would go on a 7-0 run with 1:49 to play. Berger would hit a jumper with just over a minute and a half to play as Indiana (17-8, 6-7 B1G) wouldn’t score for the rest of the quarter with MSU (17-6, 7-5 B1G) going up 18-14.
  • In the second, Wise hit a 3-pointer with 4:42 to play to bring her team within one, 25-24. But MSU sparked an 8-0 run after that for its largest lead of the half, 33-24. However, the Hoosiers were fueled by a 6-0 run of their own with a three from sophomore guard Jaelynn Penn and a pair at the line from Berger to cut it to 33-30 at the half.
  • Coming out to start the third, a Wise 3-pointer helped take a brief lead but another Spartan run, this time a 7-0 advantage, pushed their lead to as many as nine with five minutes left in the frame. Michigan State would stretch its lead out to ten to end the third, 55-45, and outscored the Hoosiers 22-15 in the fourth to close it out.

 

NOTABLE

  • Sophomore guard Jaelynn Penn led the way for IU with 19 points and hit three 3-pointers.
  • Berger made her second career start as she added 10 points, four rebounds and four assists.
  • Sophomore guard Bendu Yeaney added 12 points, all in the second half.
  • Senior forward Kym Royster added a team-high seven rebounds and nine points while redshirt junior forward Brenna Wise added six boards and seven points.
  • The Hoosiers shot just 38.8 percent on the night from the floor and 64.3 percent from the free throw line.
  • Michigan State snapped a three-game skid to the Hoosiers and remained a perfect 13-0 at home. Shay Colley led the way for the Spartans with 32 points.

 

UP NEXT

The Hoosiers continue their road swing in the Mitten State on Thursday at Michigan. Tipoff is set for 7 p.m. ET.
