Indiana vs. James Madison: Hoosiers move on with March Madness win

Joe Robbins

Tom Crean's team did its job and pounded James Madison, moving on to the third round.

The Indiana Hoosiers weren't leaving anything to chance, pounding the James Madison Dukes, 83-62, in the second round of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament on Friday night.

While the tourney has already seen some crazy upsets like the No. 3 New Mexico Lobos and No. 2 Georgetown Hoyas going down, Indiana never let James Madison threaten the upset.

The Hoosiers were led by a balanced scoring attack that saw five players score in double figures on the evening. Yogi Ferrell had the best game of all, scoring 16 points while collecting eight rebounds and six assists.

Over at our Indiana blog, The Crimson Quarry, John M. writes that the game wasn't even as close as the lopsided score would tell you.

The final score doesn't reflect that IU jumped out to a big lead and led by as many as 33 in the second half before a late three point flurry by JMU contracted the margin a bit.

The Hoosiers now advance to play the Temple Owls of the Atlantic 10 in the third round with a Sweet 16 berth on the line. Indiana will have to stop Khalif Wyatt, who scored 31 points in Temple's win over the North Carolina State Wolfpack.
