Half the first round down, another half to go. After a frenetically-paced opening day of the 2023 NCAA Tournament on Thursday with 16 first-round games that saw the field shrink from 64 teams to 48 teams, the field will shrink again Friday with another 16 games on deck and only 16 spots open for second-round winners moving on to Sunday.
Friday’s action will begin with a stacked opening window across CBS, truTV and TNT in staggered starts at 12:15, 12:40 and 1:30, respectively. CBS will get the first of that slate at 12:15 with No. 7 seed Michigan State and No. 10 seed USC in a battle in the East Region. That will be followed by No. 3 seed Xavier opening its run in the 12:40 p.m. window and No. 3 seed Baylor kicking its tourney open at 1:30 against Kennesaw State and UCSB, respectively.
Littered about the day is a dandy afternoon full of hoops with No. 1 seed Purdue in action and No. 4 seed UConn, No. 3 seed Gonzaga, No. 6 seed Kentucky and No. 4 seed Indiana all opening their tournament runs throughout the day as well. You can find all the tip times and the full schedule of action in the details below.
Let’s take a look at the 2023 March Madness announcing teams as well as the complete schedule for the 2023 NCAA Tournament.
