If there was ever a game to solidify Indiana’s return, last night’s 70-55 win against No. 5 Michigan State was it. Tom Crean earned his first victory against friend and mentor Tom Izzo, but will the momentum carry into Sunday’s contest against Purdue?

Podcast On The Brink hosts Matt Dollinger and Greg Rosenstein discuss that and more with ESPN college basketball writer Dana O’Neil. The three recap IU’s latest win and debate who should win Big Ten player, coach and freshman of the year.

Among the topics discussed in today’s show:

· How Victor Oladipo’s energy sparked the Hoosiers to a victory
· Players – in particular Verdell Jones, Tom Pritchard – fully understanding their roles
· Bounce back performances from Jordan Hulls and Christian Watford
· Which teams could surprise in the Big Ten Tournament
· The players and coaches who deserve conference hardware
