Indiana's Victor Oladipo expected to play at Michigan St in Big 10 matchup of 1st place teams

Indiana coach Tom Crean expects Victor Oladipo to play at Michigan State.

Oladipo limped off the court Saturday with a sprained left ankle in the first half of a win against Purdue and didn't play in the second half.

Crean says Oladipo practiced some on Sunday and is doing a great job of rehabilitating his injury. In a five-point win over the Spartans on Jan. 27, the shooting guard had 21 points, seven rebounds, six assists and three blocks for the Hoosiers.

The winner of Tuesday night's game in East Lansing will earn sole possession of first place in the conference with four regular-season games remaining. Top seeding in next month's NCAA tournament also might be at stake.
