Who’s ready to watch a metric ton of basketball for 12 hours straight for the next five days?
That’s right, YOU ARE!
Today is the first full day of the 2023 NCAA men’s basketball tournament. That means that there’s 16 games on today to get us halfway to the second round of 32 teams. CBS will go on the air at 11am Central time, the first game tips off 15 minutes later, and then truTV will not wrap up the broadcast day until well past 11pm Central. Then we’ll do it all over again tomorrow! Mixed in along the way in the evening hours are a pair of First Four games in the women’s tournament in case you couldn’t get enough high stakes win-or-go-home basketball in your life.
The comment section is wide open, as always, so pipe up if you’re watching one game or another and everyone should suddenly turn over to the one you’ve got on. Or, heck, if you’ve got hot takes about uniforms, or hot takes about anything at all, speak up! That’s what the comments section is for, after all.
Here’s the schedule for the day!
