March Madness is here, and the journey ends in Indianapolis. It's a perfect equation.

Indiana and basketball go together like cocker spaniels and long, floppy ears.

All pockets of the state clamor for basketball. From tiny hamlets to some of the biggest high school gyms (the state boasts nine of the nation's 10 largest), Hoosiers have a legendary passion for roundball.
