Indiana 83, James Madison 62 (FINAL)

As might have been expected, the Indiana Hoosiers got off to a roaring start on their journey to hang national championship banner number six, routing the James Madison Dukes in Dayton, Ohio.

Freshman point guard Yogi Ferrell scored 14 of IU's first 18 points, then settled into a more all-around game. Ferrell finished with 16 points, eight rebounds and six assists, all team highs.

Four other Hoosiers joined him in double figures, led by Will Sheehey's 15.

JMU was led by a pair of freshmen itself. Guard Andre Nation scored 24 and classmate Charles Cooke added 18, all but two in the second half. The two shot 17-of-28 from the floor, with the rest of the team going 9-of-34.

IU will move on to face Temple, a winner over NC State in today's Dayton opener. The Atlantic 10 went to 6-0 in the first two rounds when La Salle knocked off Kansas State.
