Indiana destroyed James Madison, but at least there were dunks

If you’re going down, might as well do it in a blaze of glory.

James Madison had no shot against Indiana. From the opening tip, the No. 1 Hoosiers blew the No. 16 Dukes straight out of the Dayton, Ohio, waters. The final was a lopsided 83-62 behind double-digit scoring from five players, but at least there were some cool plays on both sides. Everyone look at the pretty dunks!

Indiana advances to face No. 9 Temple which, if the only perfect bracket left on Yahoo! is to be believed, the Owls will win.
