The madness is definitely back! We had a wild one on Thursday’s NCAA tournament schedule with 2-seed Kentucky shockingly losing to St. Peter’s and two 5-seeds (UCONN and Iowa) falling short. The Mountain West conference also went winless in all three games and is already eliminated from the tournament.
With Friday’s games set to tip-off, we can only hope for more of the same, and we want to make sure you’re ready. Below is our table listing all of the game times and channels for the tournament’s second day. For each game, we have a link to our game preview, so you can see how the two teams stack up against one another, what the betting lines are, and how we think you should bet the game — if you choose to do so.
This is your ultimate guide for Friday’s entire NCAA tournament schedule, so keep the page open and come back again and again for more ways to enjoy the madness.
