The first three games of coach Mel Tucker’s tenure at Michigan State (1-2) have swung wildly and No. 10 Indiana (3-0) is coming to East Lansing on Saturday (noon, ABC). “What we’re looking for and what we need is consistency in performance,” Tucker said during a videoconference on Tuesday. “You want to be successful, you have to be consistent on a day-to-day basis.

That’s what we’re working towards.
