Take a breath at halftime of Indiana-Chattanooga. Hoosiers ahead 46-37 and shooting 61 percent in this furious-paced game. Will the Mocs be the first No. 12 seed to fall?

Indiana is shooting 65 percent (13 of 20), generally handling Chattanooga's pressure, and the Hoosiers lead is only 29-26. Offense on display in Des Moines as Mocs bid to become the third No. 12 seed to win today.

Justin Tuoyo is doing his part to keep Chattanooga close against fifth-seeded Indiana. The 6-10 junior dunked and followed it on the other end with an immediate swat of Troy Williams. He's an intimidator. Mocs trail 21-17 and cheering hard for their first tournament win since 1997.
