What channel is Indiana vs. Kent State on today? Time, TV schedule for 2023 March Madness Round 1 game

The Midwest region plays host to one of the more intriguing matchups in this year’s Round of 64 when No. 4-seeded Indiana takes on No. 13-seeded Kent State.

The Hoosiers are led by All-American talent Trayce Jackson-Davis, a mercurial presence in the paint. Jackson-Davis, who has seemingly been carving up Big Ten defenses since the Mesozoic Era, is among the country’s best talents, a smooth lefty whose game looks like it would be more appropriate under the grainy filter of 1980s hoop. He’s not much a jump shooter. He doesn’t have an especially strong right hand. But he gets buckets all the same.
