NCAA March Madness 2013: Game time, TV schedule for Indiana vs. James Madison

USA TODAY Sports

The Hoosiers enter the second round as heavy favorites over the Dukes, who won on Wednesday over LIU Brooklyn.

The Indiana Hoosiers will begin their journey for the Final Four on Friday against James Madison.

The Hoosiers, who received the top seed in the East Region following an impressive season in the Big Ten, will be heavily favored against JMU. IU is rated as the top offensive team in the country by Kenpom, and their effort on the defensive end has improved drastically since the beginning of the year.

Indiana is led by two Player of the Year candidates in Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipo. Zeller is a force around the paint and leads the team in scoring at nearly 17 points a game. Oladipo has broken out in a big way as a junior, and many consider him to be one of the most well-rounded players in all of college basketball. As a team, the Hoosiers shoot an impressive 41 percent from behind the three-point arc.

The Dukes are going to have to play their best game of the season if they hope to keep the score close for 40 minutes. James Madison may start off the game strong as Indiana shakes off some rust, but it's tough to see this one being competitive for long. The Hoosiers are one of the best team's in the country, and they won't slip up this early in the NCAA Tournament.

Start Time, TV Schedule: 4:10 p.m. ET, TBS

Location: University of Dayton Arena in Dayton, Ohio.
