It’s finally here. That time of year we all know and love: March Madness. We got a taste a week ago with plenty of craziness across the country with every conference in America playing a conference tournament. Hawkeye fans in particular got to relish in the joys of a buzzer beater when Jordan Bohannon opened the bank against Indiana to send Iowa to the Big Ten Tournament Championship.
But now the madness kicks up a notch with 32 NCAA Tournament games in two days of round one. There are 16 games each of the next two days spread across the CBS family of networks with tipoffs running from 11:15am CT to 8:57pm CT on Thursday and Friday. The channel lineup includes CBS, TBS, TNT and TruTV.
To help you identify which game is on when and where, we’ve put together a rundown of the games with tip time, tv channel and opening line. As a reminder, you can stream all of the NCAA Tournament games on Parmount+. Pro tip, they are running a free week trial which would get you through the first two rounds of the tournament if you’re so inclined.
Here’s a look at the full bracket.
Now for the round one games. Click each matchup to be taken to the NCAA’s site for live stats. If you’re so inclined, you can also click each game line to put your money where your mind is.

That’s the full slate for day one. We’ll update with the full Friday slate, which will mirror Thursday’s tip times, once we get through a chunk of the Thursday slate so as to not totally muddy things up. We’ll also have a fully separate game thread with details on how to watch as the 5 seed Iowa Hawkeyes take on 12 seed Richmond this afternoon.
