The Hoosiers entered Saturday at the top of the Big Ten standings, and hosted the team that helped them get there. Michigan State came to Bloomington following an upset of Michigan, which allowed No. 7 Indiana to move into first place. It wasn't a warm welcome for the Spartans, as Indiana cruised to a 76-58 victory behind a career night from Grace Berger. Berger came alive in the third quarter dropping 17 of the team’s 30 points, and outscored Michigan State by herself. Berger’s career-high 29 points stemmed from her controlling the floor on offense, and getting any shot she wanted — mid-range pull up, cross key lay-in, turn around jumper; the rim looked 10 feet wide for Berger. “I think I just came out really aggressive,” Berger said after the game. “Our mindset was to get an early lead and never let it go.” The Indiana defense has been another bright spot all season long. Still yet to allow an opponent to score over 70 points, the Hoosiers showcased why they have one of the best perimeter defenses in the country. Michigan State's leading scorer, Nia Clouden, came into the game averaging 21.3 points per game. Indiana’s relentless defense held her to just 10 points on 3-for-12 shooting. Throughout the course of the game Michigan State’s offense was disrupted and unable to get into any sort of rhythm.
