The 2014 NCAA tournament will last three weeks, starting on Tuesday and continuing through the title game on Monday, April 7. 

The first round will span March 18-19 and consist of four games. The winners of those four games will advance to the round of 64, better known as the second round. Second-round matchups will tip off on Thursday and continue through Friday. 

Once the field is narrowed down to 32 teams, the round of 32 (the third round) will commence on Saturday, continuing through Sunday. At that point, we'll arrive at the Sweet 16.

The 16 remaining teams will then travel to their regional sites. The four this year are Memphis, Tenn. (South), Anaheim, Calif. (West), New York (East) and Indianapolis (Midwest).

After three days off, the tournament will resume with four regional semifinal games on Thursday, March 27. The last four regional semifinals will be played on Friday, March 28. The South and West Regions will begin semifinal play first on March 27 and the East and Midwest Regions will tip off on March 28.

Then, two regional finals (South and West) will be played on Saturday, March 29. The final two regions (East and Midwest) will be decided on Sunday, March 30, to determine the Final Four. 

The last remaining teams will then have a little less than a week to prepare for their national semifinal showdowns on Saturday, April 5, in Arlington, Texas. The two semifinal winners will then meet in the national championship on Monday, April 7 in Arlington.
