No. 1 seed Indiana rolls past JMU

Freshman Yogi Ferrell scored 14 points in the first six minutes as top-seeded Indiana slam dunked its way to an 83-62 win over James Madison in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Friday. Not taking any chances with a No. 16 seed, the Hoosiers (28-6) started fast and built a 33-point lead in the second half over the Dukes (21-15) and opened the tourney with a statement they intend to be around for a while.

Dienhart: 64 reasons why the NCAA tourney is great

As if you needed any more reasons to celebrate the full-fledged start of the greatest spectacle in sports, here are 64 more—in no particular order—on why the NCAA Tournament is without peer. Why not 68? Because I don’t like the play-in games. [ RELATED: Dienhart’s 3 keys for every Big Ten team in NCAA tourney ] Let’s roll! 1. It’s not the BCS—or just a four-team playoff 2.

Let's see these NCAA games: IU-MSU, please

Technically, the NCAA tourney tipped off Tuesday night. But with a pair of Big Ten teams set to open the Big Dance on Thursday, it’s time to consider the best Big Ten NCAA matchups we may see in this year’s tourney. See my top 10 potential battles in this post. [ RELATED: View the NCAA tourney bracket (PDF) ] 1.

Dienhart: 3 keys for each Big Ten NCAA team

On the eve of the NCAA tournament, hope spring eternal for every team. Get hot, rip off six victories in a row, and you will be national champion. With seven teams in the field, the Big Ten has a good chance to see its first national championship since Michigan State won it all in 1999-2000. In fact, the Big Ten has four teams seeded among the top four in various regions: No. 1 Indiana; No. 2 Ohio State; No. 3 Michigan State; No. 4 Michigan. And Wisconsin is a No. 5 seed. No. 7 Illinois and No. 11 Minnesota also

NCAA Preview: Indiana ready to roll as No. 1

Tom Crean and the Hoosiers didn’t get the No. 1 spot in the Midwest—and the chance to play the second weekend of the tourney in Indianapolis that came along with it–but they are No. 1 in the East and open in nearby Dayton, Ohio. All in all, it’s not a terrible draw, especially when one looks at the loaded field in the Midwest. However, Indiana is only 3-3 in its last six games.

Big Ten Geeks: Before the madness, a look back

As we sit on the cusp of postseason play for nine Big Ten teams, it feels an appropriate time to revisit where we were just four short months ago, previewing a season that was about to unfold before us. Did we nail it, or do we need to turn in our Geek cards? Here’s our projected Big Ten records from November compared to the actual results: Team BTG Predicted W-L Actual W-L Deviation Indiana 14-4 14-4 0 Ohio State 13-5 13-5 0 Michigan State 12-6 13-5 +1 Michigan 12-6 12-6 0 Wisconsin 11-7 12-6 +1 Minnesota 11-7 8-10 -3 Illinois 9-9

Photo: Victor Oladipo on SI regional cover

For this year’s NCAA tourney preview edition, Sports Illustrated is producing four regional covers. One of the covers features a Big Ten star. It’s Indiana junior Victor Oladipo. See the cover in this post. SI is doing something pretty cool with this year’s regional covers, too, in that it’s allowing every student featured on the covers to tag themselves in it. Yes, Oladipo’s already done it. The three other covers feature Gonzaga (Kelly Olynyk), Kansas (Ben McLemore) and Syracuse (Michael Carter-Williams). Oladipo and Indiana open up NCAA action at 4:10 p.m. ET Friday. There was also this from SI today:

Seven important players to Big Ten's NCAA fate

Seven Big Ten teams made the NCAA tournament, and now it’s time to look at one key player from each team who could help fuel a tourney run. I’m not talking about the obvious stars, such as Trey Burke, Deshaun Thomas or Cody Zeller, here. Instead, these are guys who either have struggled lately or have heated up down the stretch. D.J. Richardson, Illinois – The Illini shoot more than 3s than anyone, and Richardson averages seven attempts from distance per game. Problem is, in the last four games, he’s a 25 percent shooter from distance (7-of-28) – not to

Big Ten Geeks: On Buckeyes & NCAA Tourney

Ohio State won the Big Ten Tournament this weekend, the fourth time that Thad Matta’s team has taken home the crown. While the Buckeyes won largely on the strength of its defense—holding Wisconsin to under 0.8 points per possession—this Ohio State team has been offensively excellent over the back half of its Big Ten schedule: Offensive Efficiency 1st 9 Big Ten Games 1.01 2nd 9 Big Ten Games 1.07 We know the Buckeyes have a great defense, but the one-dimensional nature of this team limited its ceiling. But now that Ohio State is starting to score in bunches, it’s time
