The Indiana Hoosiers are led by freshman star Cody Zeller. The 6'11 star was named the Big Ten Freshman of the Year after averaging over 15 points per game this season. Zeller not only led the team in scoring but rebounding, as well, at 6.4 per game.
Junior guard Jordan Hulls is coming off two-straight games where he has shot seven-for-10 from the field.
Tom Crean's squad had their five-game winning streak snapped by Wisconsin on Friday, and are considered a dark horse in the South Region.
But the New Mexico State Aggies are no pushovers. Marvin Menzies's squad didn't have a difficult non-conference schedule this season, but have won nine of their last 10, and defeated their opponents by a high-scoring margin.
The Aggies had six players this season who averaged eight points a game or better. Senior forward Wendell McKines leads the team in scoring average at 18.8, and is also the most dominant rebounder on the squad with a 10.8 average. McKines can also shoot from beyond the arc.
Senior guard Hernst Laroche is a solid perimeter player, as well. Laroche averaged 12 points per games, and knocked down better than 40 percent of his three-point shots.
PREDICTION: The Hoosiers may have their work cut out against them, as the Aggies will not be intimidated by the Big 10 club. Expect a hard-fought game, as New Mexico State keeps the game competitive for most of the way. Still, Indiana has faced tough opponents this season and have a height advantage, which should help them pull of the win.
PREDICTED SCORE: Indiana squeaks by New Mexico State, 76-72
