Next to Louisville, the Hoosiers are the most popular pick to win it all. On a day when upsets seemed to be the norm, Cody Zeller and the rest of the Indiana team showed why they were ranked No. 1 in the nation for most of the season, and why so many people think they will win it all.
And a decent James Madison team just so happened to get in the way. No matter. Zeller was more than happy to show JMU that the Hoosiers are not going to go quietly (if they go at all...).
Indiana easily won this one 83-62. Next up--Temple.
BEST OF MAXIM
Thoughts on a 83-62 win against the Dukes:
This was how it was supposed to go. Indiana did not mess around, did not let the Dukes for a second think an upset was brewing. Yogi Ferrell, with JMU perhaps keying on Cody Zeller and all the shooters around him, hit on drives at the rim and from beyond the arc. He scored the Hoosiers’ first nine points as JMU scored none. 9-0 Hoosiers...

Indiana took care of business today the way a #1 seed should, and it looked like they recaptured a little bit of lost swagger in the process.
The clear MVP today was Yogi Ferrell, who finished with 16 points (including the first 9 of the game), 8 rebounds, and 6 assists. He was absolutely terrific on both ends of the floor. Will Sheehey joined him with seven made field goals, finishing...
CBS and Turner Broadcasting locked down the rights to broadcast the NCAA tournaments from 2011-2014 for the enormous price of $10.8 billion in 2010. The deal lets fans watch games from morning till night, watch several matchups at once thanks to multiple stations airing the tournament and most importantly the agreement allows all those hard workers in offices a chance to watch the...

It’s always interesting to see who celebrities pick to win the NCAA Tournament. Tiger Woods is the latest big-name star to reveal his national champion, telling ESPN at the Arnold Palmer Invitational that he’s got the Indiana Hoosiers cutting down the nets in April.
“Louisville,” said Mark Fulcher, as he plopped down Rose’s bag on the edge of the Bay Hill practice putting...
DAYTON, Ohio — Indiana was the nation’s preseason No. 1 team. The Hoosiers are a 1-seed in the NCAA Tournament. As a result, there are a lot of people picking the Hoosiers to win it all. That includes President Barack Obama, who chose Indiana as his national championship when he filled out with bracket with ESPN’s Andy Katz on Tuesday.
“It is pretty neat. I haven’t agreed...

DAYTON, Ohio — Yogi Ferrell is often ignored and overlooked because, frankly, you can’t talk about everybody at the same time. Ferrell happens to play on a team with guys named Victor Oladipo and Cody Zeller with a coach named Tom Crean. There aren’t enough headlines to go around.
But if you spend any amount of time around the Indiana program, you know how important Ferrell...

If you can fit Otto Porter Jr., Mason Plumlee, Deshaun Thomas, Shane Larkin, and Cody Zeller into your line up do so.
P.J. Hairston (North Carolina)- There is no hotter shooter in the country right now that Hairston. The Tar Heels will be playing Villanova, who is one of the worst teams in the country defending the three. Hairston is coming off a 28 point effort in the...

Thoughts on a 58-52 win against the Owls:
They did it. Finally.
The Hoosiers, in a grind-it-out game reminiscent of losses this season, got over the hump in a low-scoring affair and willed themselves to victory in crunch time.
It was tough and far from beautiful. But they survive, and D.C. and the Sweet Sixteen are calling.
Much was made of the Khalif Wyatt-Victor Oladipo matchup...
