2024 NCAA Tournament scores, schedule: March Madness bracket, game dates, TV channels, tipoff times, locations



The first round of the NCAA Tournament continues Friday at 12:15 pm ET and won’t end until roughly 12 hours later. Scores will constantly change and schedules will be regularly updated as the day, one of the best days on the sports calendar, goes on. This is the best place to keep up.

Northwestern and FAU will get things underway on CBS, where the Owls will are beginning their quest to try to make back-to-back Final Fours. It won’t be easy as a No. 8 seed, not with Boo Buie and the Wildcats as a first-round opponent and Tristen Newton and top-ranked UConn likely waiting in the second round. But, remember, FAU was a No. 9 seed last year when it made its magical run through the bracket, and it got to play a No. 16 seed, as opposed to a No. 1 seed, in the second round after Fairleigh Dickinson upset Zach Edey and Purdue.

In other words, you never know.

Also worth monitoring Friday: Tyler Kolek

The Marquette point guard hasn’t played in 22 days because of an oblique injury but is expected to return to the lineup for a No. 2-15 matchup against Western Kentucky that’s scheduled to tip at 2 p.m. ET on TBS. If the Golden Eagles prevail, they’ll play either Florida or Colorado on Sunday.
