DAYTON, Ohio (WISH) - The NCAA Tournament game between Indiana University and James Madison University will put the two former high school teammates against each other for the first time as college basketball players.
Louisville, Ky. sophomores Remy Abell (IU) and Arman Marks (JMU) will play each other Friday.
The two Kentucky products have exchanged texts since JMU topped Long Island University-Brooklyn Wednesday night to advance them to a matchup with top seeded Indiana.

"One thing comes to mind: Old times. It'll be just like old times," Marks said. "Right after we won the game I got (a) text from him saying, 'Let's go buddy' so I said, 'All right, let's do it.'"
"It's very exciting playing a high school teammate and someone I've played with for a long time," said Abell.
If Marks' team can pull out a win Friday afternoon, it would be the first time in history a No. 16 seed team defeated a No. 1 seed.
