The opening weekend of the 2023 NCAA Tournament rolls along Friday with 16 more games from first-round action. When the day reaches a conclusion, the field will be whittled down to 32 teams in advance of second-round action on Saturday and Sunday. With games spanning the entire day, it’s a college basketball fan’s paradise.
Action gets started with a matchup between two big-name programs at 12:15 p.m. ET as No. 7 seed Michigan State squares off with No. 10 seed USC, and it will run deep into the night, when No. 4 seed Indiana and No. 13 seed Kent State shut things down in the day’s last game.
In between, there figure to be crazy finishes, emerging Cinderella candidates and star performances that will wind up in the “One Shining Moment” montage after the nets are cut down at the Final Four in Houston on April 3. No. 1 seed Purdue is in action Friday, and No. 6 seed Kentucky will be also.
The Wildcats are trying to avoid consecutive first round losses after last season’s humiliation against No. 15 seed Saint Peter’s, and they face Providence, a tough No. 11 seed, in a primetime slot. Grab your remotes and settle in for one of the top sports days on the calendar as the first round of the NCAA Tournament comes to a close.
