College hoops expert discusses Indiana's potential in return to March Madness
For the first time since 2016, Indiana is participating in March Madness. It was a long drought for one of college basketball’s traditional bluebloods, but the Hoosiers are finally back in the Big Dance.
IU will start its NCAA Tournament on Tuesday night, taking on Wyoming for the No. 12 seed play-in game. Before the Hoosiers hit the hardwood in Dayton, college basketball expert and Big Ten Network contributor Andy Katz provided a preview of what lies ahead for Mike Woodson and Co.
Below is the video — and Katz believes the Hoosiers have a chance to win two games in this year’s tourney.

Considering how much Indiana struggled throughout the late portion of the season — and its 5-year absence from the NCAA Tournament — getting two victories would be a huge boost for this program.
Indiana closed out the season with a 20-13 record, which included wins over Notre Dame, Purdue and Ohio State in the regular season. The Hoosiers scored wins over Michigan and Illinois in the B1G Tournament, as well.
Tip-off between IU and Wyoming is set for approximately 9:10 p.m. ET on truTV.
