2023 March Madness: No. 4 Indiana vs. No. 13 Kent State

Date: Friday, March 17
Start time: 9:55 p.m. ET
TV channel: TBS
Live stream: March Madness Live

Indiana wrapped up their season with a loss to Penn State in the Big Ten Tournament semifinals. The Hoosiers are led by forward Trayce Jackson-Davis in both points and rebounds.

Kent State won the MAC Championship Game and enters as an interesting potential disruptor. Their swarming defense could be a problem for Indiana’s Jackson-Davis-dependent offense, and they gave Gonzaga and Houston some trouble earlier in the season.
