Indiana men’s basketball earned its first bid to the NCAA Tournament since 2016, the selection committee announced Sunday. Indiana will play the University of Wyoming in a first-four game Tuesday in Dayton, Ohio. 

Indiana entered the Big Ten Tournament as the No. 9 seed and on the bubble of earning a March Madness bid. It earned a spot after advancing to the semifinals with wins over No. 8 seed Michigan and No. 1 seed Illinois. Indiana put together a 20-13 record across the regular season and Big Ten Tournament under first-year head coach Mike Woodson. 

With a win against Wyoming, Indiana would move on to face Saint Mary's College in the first round on Thursday in Portland, Oregon.
