It shot 29 percent in the first half and never recovered.Indiana showed from the opening tip it wouldn't take James Madison lightly. Dukes freshman guard Andre Nation said before the game he wanted to play IU at its best. That's yet another example of beware getting what you wish for.Coach Tom Crean went with a nine-man rotation until the final minutes, when he cleared the bench. Derek Elston after sitting out the Big Ten tourney with a sore knee. Maurice Creek got in late for his first NCAA tourney experience after missing last year with an injury. Bench totals: 26 points, 13 rebounds.Indiana made shots early and often, and never stopped. It shot 53.0 percent from the field, 39.0 percent from three-point range.
