It’s impossible to watch all of the games in the NCAA tournament. If you want to try, however, then we have provided the schedule of games to watch.
The TV schedule for the games can be found here.
(Note: If you don’t have some of these channels, there is a live stream provided by the NCAA)
With 32 games on Thursday as well as 32 more on Friday, college basketball fans will be unable to leave their houses for fear of missing a good game. If you want to go outside once in a while, just watch some of the good games.
For earlier on Thursday, watch the No. 6 Butler vs. No. 11 Bucknell game (12:40 p.m. ET on truTV). Butler hasn’t been on a national spotlight much, but it is a great team once again. Rotnei Clarke has been a deadly shooter from long range (despite his odd release), and Andrew Smith has been an efficient scorer as a center.
Once Thursday night rolls along, tune in to watch No. 12 California take on No. 5 UNLV (7:27 p.m. on truTV). The Rebels of UNLV have failed to make it out of the second round for the past three seasons and will try to break the streak against the Golden Bears. Don’t sleep on California, as it has the Pac-12 Player of the Year in Allen Crabbe, who is averaging 18.7 points and 6.0 rebounds per game.
One of the bigger games earlier on Friday will be No. 7 Creighton vs. No. 11 Cincinnati (2:45 p.m. ET on CBS). The game will feature Creighton’s Doug McDermott, who is the nation’s second-highest scorer. He is averaging 23.1 points per game on 56.1 percent shooting, making him one of the most lethal scorers in the country. For Cincinnati, Sean Kilpatrick will be leading the Bearcats. He has been the best player for Cincy, averaging 16.9 points and 5.2 rebounds per game. It will be a great matchup between to star players and certainly a great game to watch overall.
To finish off the second round of basketball, watch as No. 6 UCLA will take on No. 11 Minnesota (9:57 p.m. ET on truTV). Trevor Mbakwe has been a dominating forward all season for the Gophers and will look to dominate on the glass as usual. The Bruins will be without Jordan Adams, but Shabazz Muhammad will provide plenty of exciting plays as he is one of the best freshmen in the country.
There’s a lot of basketball to be watched in the next couple of weeks, but at least this guide will point out some of the important ones to watch out for on Thursday and Friday.
