The Miami Hurricanes and Indiana Hoosiers meet Sunday in the college basketball NCAA Tournament Second Round at the MVP Arena. Let’s preview this game and give out a pick and prediction.

The Miami Hurricanes are averaging 79.6 points on 48.5 percent shooting and allowing 71.7 points on 44.8 percent shooting. Isaiah Wong is averaging 16.2 points and 4.3 rebounds, while Jordan Miller is averaging 15.3 points and 6.2 rebounds. Norchad Omier is the third double-digit scorer and Nijel Pack is grabbing 2.7 rebounds. The Miami Hurricanes are shooting 37.2 percent from beyond the arc and 78 percent from the free throw line. The Miami Hurricanes are allowing 33.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 32.1 rebounds per game.

The Indiana Hoosiers are averaging 75.3 points on 48.9 percent shooting and allowing 68.5 points on 41.2 percent shooting. Trayce Jackson-Davis is averaging 20.8 points and 10.9 rebounds, while Jalen Hood-Schifino is averaging 13.5 points and 3.7 assists. Miller Kopp is dishing 1.2 assists and Xavier Johnson is grabbing 3.3 rebounds. The Indiana Hoosiers are shooting 37.6 percent from beyond the arc and 71.4 percent from the free throw line. The Indiana Hoosiers are allowing 33 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 33.1 rebounds per game.

The Hurricanes are 6-13 ATS in their last 19 Sunday games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Hoosiers are 8-3 ATS in their last 11 neutral site games and 11-5 ATS in their last 16 Sunday games. The under is 4-1 in Hurricanes last 5 Sunday games. The over is 5-2 in Hoosiers last 7 overall.

Again, the Miami Hurricanes have the guards, experience, and coach to beat anybody in this tournament. However, Miami has issues with turnovers and would have lost its first round matchup if Drake didn’t completely throw up on itself in the final 5 minutes. The Indiana Hoosiers are coming off a complete showing against Kent State and has the offense to give Miami issues. Indiana wins in the favorite role by an average of 11.5 points. I’d need more to consider the Canes. Small chalk, give me Indiana.
