More NCAA openers from South Point: Baylor -13 vs. New Mexico State, Miami-Florida -1.5 vs. Michigan State, Oregon -15 vs. Iowa, Creighton -2 vs. Rhode Island, UCLA -17 vs. Kent State. That completes the 28 first-round openers plus the four First Four games at the South Point. Treasure Island, CG Technology, William Hill and Westgate are starting to post openers now.

Indiana has dealt with its share of disappointments this season starting with the season-ending injury to OG Anunoby. Despite entering the Big Ten tournament on the bubble and hearing the job rumors surrounding coach Tom Crean, IU gave a focused effort in its 95-73 win over Iowa.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Indiana set a school record with 12 3-pointers -- led by James Blackmon Jr.'s 4-5 effort -- and 3-point percentage at 60.0 in 95-73 win over Iowa. Hoosiers advance to face No. 2 seed Wisconsin in the tournament quarterfinals.

John Gasaway ESPN Insider 

Seeing Indiana play well is an inspiring March backs-against-the-wall thing that still makes you wonder what in the world February was all about.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Indiana's James Blackmon Jr., has made four 3-pointers in a game for the 14th time this season. IU is 5-0 in games where he has five or more.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Iowa's Jordan Bohannon shoots 44% in games they've won this season. Indiana sagged off him to help (needlessly) on the post, he made his first three attempts from behind the arc. The Hoosiers need to find someone else to help off of if they want to use double teams.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Indiana usually a bit more deliberate on offense, but early tempo is tilted toward the faster pace way Iowa wants to play. Hawkeyes average possession length is 15.4 seconds -- which is 25th national per Ken Pomeroy -- the Hoosiers average 17.5.

C.L. Brown ESPN Staff Writer 

Indiana's Thomas Bryant is one of the most entertaining players to watch in college basketball just to see how he hypes himself up. After blocking Iowa's Tyler Cook on a possession he quietly repeated "Nope, nope," to no one in particular.

Coming up at the halftime of Big South championship (Campbell vs. Winthrop) on ESPN2, we will look at Iowa's chances for the NCAA tournament (playing Penn State). I'm starting to really like the Hawkeyes resume with road wins over Maryland, Wisconsin and wins over Purdue and Michigan. Iowa could end up making a late surge for a bid.
