DAYTON, Ohio – Is anyone up for a pop quiz?

Victor Oladipo was faced with an unexpected series of trivial questions on Thursday that highlighted the differences between his No.1 seed Indiana Hoosiers, a program that has won five national championships, and his opponent on Friday, seeded No.16 James Madison University. .

Did he know which conference JMU played in? His mascot? His location ?

“They’re in the CAA,” he says. I think it’s the Dukes, James Madison Dukes. Who was the other? They come from Virginia, the DMV (DC-Maryland-Virginia area). Yeah, I’m from there so I know a little something about James Madison. “

A follow-up question: Did Oladipo know who James Madison was?

“You mean the person, don’t you – James Madison?” said Oladipo. “He signed something big, like the Declaration of Independence. I’m right, right? Emancipation Proclamation, something like that. One of those big names. I know he is a great historical figure in the history of the United States. “

To close! But not quite there – Madison signed the Constitution and wrote the Bill of Rights. And, the biggest thing Oladipo missed? Madison was the fourth President of the United States.

Oladipo’s teammate was not a fan of the barrage of trivial questions.

Cody Zeller stepped in and hit back at the questioner, “Do you know what a Hoosier is? Oladipo echoed the question, “Do you know what an Indiana Hoosier is?”

Well no.

“I think I won that little trivia challenge right there,” Oladipo said with a smile.

Minutes later, he discussed the surprise pop quiz in the Indiana locker room.

“I know James Madison, George Mason, all of these schools,” said Oladipo, who grew up in Maryland. “It was pretty cool that I answered all of these questions well, but it was a little upsetting that he didn’t know what a Hoosier was.
