The No. 1 seed Indiana Hoosiers await the winner of the "First Four" game between James Madison and LIU Brooklyn.

Both teams will arrive in Dayton for the opening round of the 2013 NCAA Tournament by way of automatic bids won in their respective conference tournaments. The JMU Dukes may be without senior forward Rayshawn Goins, who was reportedly arrested and charged with misdemeanor obstruction of justice and disorderly conduct on Sunday night.

The winner in this matchup on March 20 will earn a No. 16 seed and play Indiana in the second round.
