March Madness schedule 2024: Day-by-day TV coverage, streams to watch NCAA Tournament games

With unlikely conference tournament winners stealing so many automatic bids, the NCAA Tournament selection committee had an extremely difficult assignment. But after around-the-clock discussions and several changes to the seedings, college basketball fans can finally fill out their brackets.

UConn sits at the top of the East Region as the No. 1 overall seed and is looking to become the first back-to-back national champion since Florida won two consecutive titles in 2006 and 2007. Houston, Purdue and North Carolina also locked up No. 1 seeds in their regions.

Tennessee, Arizona, Marquette and Iowa State landed on the No. 2 line. Baylor, Creighton, Kentucky and Illinois earned the No. 3 seeds.

This year’s NCAA Tournament will start with First Four games on March 19 and 20, and it will end with the championship game on April 8.

Here is everything you need to know about March Madness, including key dates and TV and streaming options for each round of the NCAA Tournament.
