NCAA Announces Tighter Schedule For March Madness

NCAA Announces Tighter Schedule For March Madness

News18

INDIANAPOLIS: That much-anticipated opening Thursday of March Madness will belong to the play-in teams, part of a scrambled and modestly condensed schedule for the 2021 tournament released Tuesday.

The coronavirus pandemic forced the NCAA to move the entire 67-game tournament to Indiana, which means the schedule doesn't have to be built with travel concerns in mind.

The so-called First Four two games pitting the last four at-large teams in the field and another two featuring the lowest-rated conference champions will take place on Thursday, March 18.

That day typically would have marked the start of play in the main bracket.
