Indiana and Wyoming met in Tuesday night’s second NCAA Tournament First Four game. Indiana in control for much of the game and held off the Cowboys late to secure an 8 point win and book their spot in the field of 64.

The game started out as a defensive struggle. At the 10 minute mark of the first half, the score was 11-8. Luckily, the pace picked up a bit from there, with Indiana entering the half with a 30-25 lead, led by their ability to attack the basket and their defense repeatedly forcing Wyoming turnovers.

In the second half, it was more of the same. Indiana continued to successfully attack the basket and found some success on the offensive end in spite of the fact that they only hit one 3 in each half. Wyoming kept themselves in the game throughout with some timely 3s, but they just didn’t have an answer for Trayce Jackson-Davis.

Jackson-Davis put up 29 points and 9 rebounds in his NCAA Tournament debut as he consistently had the answers Indiana needed in the game. It also didn’t hurt that he had moments like this.

There was a little bit of drama late as Indiana committed some bad fouls while Wyoming tried to mount a comeback, but they managed to hold on in the end, winning by a score of 66-58.

Indiana now moves on to play 5 seed Saint Mary’s on Thursday night in their first appearance in the NCAA Tournament field of 64 since the 2015-16 season.

The tournament is already off to a better start than last year for the Big Ten.
