March Madness is here and thankfully the work day is almost over! One of the biggest games of the tournament is almost here and I officially give you permission to leave work early for it. Indiana and James Madison are playing today at 4:10 pm ET at the University of Daytona Arena in Dayton, Ohio. The number 1 seed Indiana vs number 16 seed James Madison game is being televised on TBS, however, if you are stuck at work you can live stream the Indiana vs James Madison game online. You can live stream the entire Indiana vs James Madison — and every March Madness game — on the official March Madness Live website right here.
Indiana enters the game with a 27-6 record while under dogs James Madison enter with a 21-14 record.
Here is more of a break down, from ESPN, on who and what to watch for during today’s Indiana vs James Madison second round match up.
Who to watch: Cody Zeller and Victor Oladipoare Indiana’s inside-outside punch, with Zeller controlling the glass and Oladipo doing, well, just about everything else. Both are national player of the year candidates.
What to watch: Can James Madison make it a game? If so, it will require an epic defensive performance, because the Dukes’ undersized spread-floor lineup won’t do much to affect Zeller and IU forward Christian Watford, both of whom move well and are comfortable on the perimeter.
Stat to watch: Indiana’s greatest weakness is its propensity to the turn the ball over on 19.1 percent of its possessions. JMU forces turnovers 21.8 percent of the time — its best defensive characteristic. This is a massive mismatch, obviously, but for the Dukes any and all hope rests with their ability to turn IU over.
