Ferrell's hot hand leads Hoosiers to win over James Madison
Cody Zeller scored 11 points for Indiana.
Yogi Ferrell led Indiana with 16 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists.
DAYTON, Ohio -
Yogi Ferrell had a perfect first half and Indiana never looked back in a second round rout of James Madison at the NCAA Tournament.
Ferrell had 14 points on 6-of-6 shooting in the first half, including two three-pointers, as the Hoosiers rolled to an 83-62 win. Ferrell finished with 16 points to lead Indiana and his eight rebounds and six assists were also team highs for the game.
"I felt like it gave me great confidence. When I went on a little run, Jordan (Hulls) just said, you know, pick my spots, try not to force anything. So I kind of took that and just took what the defense gave me," Ferrell said.
"He was never a freshman, even from the first day when he waltzed onto this campus. He's never played like one. His experience in the Big Ten, now through his first NCAA college game, it just goes to show how much he's grown throughout the year," Oladipo said.
