STAT OF THE DAY

If you value consistency, STATS thinks you’ll like Indiana. Only two players in the tournament averaged at least 16 points per game in their previous appearances (minimum: three games) and two of them are Hoosiers: Christian Watford (19.0 ppg in three games) and Cody Zeller (16.7 ppg in three games).

Gonzaga’s Elias Harris was at 16.0 ppg in six games, but managed just five on Thursday when the Zags beat Southern.

QUOTE OF DAY

“We got in here a little late last night, but we’re trying to enjoy Austin. I did walk down 6th Street last night and I didn’t realize how many bars they had. But I didn’t see any of my guys there, so we’re off to a good start.” _ Pacific coach Bob Thomason, whose 15th-seeded Tigers play Miami, on his team’s arrival Wednesday night.
