NCAA News stand: For your reading pleasure

Here are the url links to my NCAA coverage in Friday’s Courier & Press sports section as well as the IU story in our NCAA tournament section, and a story on James Madison’s win over LIU Brooklyn on Wednesday:

DAYTON, Ohio — Sarah Palin, no doubt, would call one of the questions Victor Oladipo was asked Thursday one of those “gotcha” deals.—ndbasketball/

DAYTON, Ohio — Mike Brey is hoping his Notre Dame players become a little more spoiled in the next few weeks.—regionalnotes/

DAYTON, Ohio — Just because he’ll have at least a 3-inch height advantage over any player James Madison can put on the floor, Cody Zeller didn’t want to make too big a deal of the impact he’s expected have in today’s NCAA tournament game.

DAYTON, Ohio — Everything James Madison University freshman guard Andre Nation knows about Indiana basketball he’s learned by watching the Hoosiers play on television.

With the basketball battles of the Big Ten behind them — momentarily, at least — Tom Crean and his fourth-ranked Hoosiers are determined to prove that the nation’s No. 1 preseason team will be the best of the postseason, too.
