Indiana’s Victor Oladipo (going up for the put-back) had 19 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 steals.

Victor Oladipo’s go-ahead putback, dunk and free throws in the final minute lifted top-ranked Indiana to a 72-68 win over No. 4 Michigan State on Tuesday night at East Lansing, Mich.

Indiana (24-3, 12-2 Big Ten) broke a first-place tie in the conference and moved a step closer toward earning top seeding next month in the NCAA Tournament. The Hoosiers had lost 17 straight — since 1991 — on the road against the Spartans.

Michigan State blew opportunities at the line.

Trailing by 3 with 3.7 seconds left, Gary Harris was fouled on a 3-point attempt. He missed the first one and then after making the second, missed the third on purpose. Indiana got the rebound — Oladipo got to it, of course — and he hit two free throws to seal the win.

Keith Appling had missed the front end of a one and one with a little more than a minute left.

Michigan State (22-5, 11-3) had won five straight and 11 of 12 with its only loss during the stretch at Indiana.

Oladipo, who sprained his left ankle in his last game, had 19 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 steals.

Missouri 63, Florida 60 — Laurence Bowers had 17 points plus 10 rebounds and the host Tigers (19-7, 8-5 SEC) erased a 13-point deficit in the second half to rally past the No. 5 Gators (21-4, 11-2).
