Michigan State took care of business against Ohio State in the Big Ten Tournament and will advance to the semifinals Saturday.

The Spartans will play the victor of Nebraska vs. Wisconsin in the semi-final round on Saturday. Wins against NCAA Tournament-bound teams Marquette, Louisville, Michigan State (twice), and Wisconsin give IN plenty of quality wins, but 15 losses could be too much for the committee to allow the Cream & Crimson an at-large bid IN March Madness.

Michigan State jumped out to an 11-point lead by the 14:29 mark of the first half behind a pair of 3-pointers from Kenny Goins and three baskets from Cassius Winston.

But the Spartans couldn't maintain a lead that large, as Wisconsin heated up from outside and cut the deficit to eight points at halftime.

With 10 minutes left in the second half, the Spartans' lead was down to six points. Then, Indiana responded with a 13-0 run, powered by six points from Green and five more from Evan Fitzner.
