The hype will be real at Assembly Hall on Sunday when the Indiana Hoosiers host Tom Izzo and the Michigan State Spartans.

The Hoosiers have picked themselves off the mat in the Big Ten, registering two dominant wins at home against the Wisconsin Badgers and on the road against the Fighting Illini of Illinois. The season is very much alive for Indiana and an opportunity to add to their NCAA Tournament resume is there for the taking Saturday when Sparty arrives in Bloomington.
