Within the first two hours of NCAA tournament play Friday, two No. 2 seeds—Duke and Miami—will take the floor, Marshall Henderson will be in play and thusly apt to do anything and everything within the paradigm of human emotion, and an enticing No. 8 v. No. 9 game will tip off.
And there are still 12 games to go after those four go final. No. 1 seeds Indiana and Kansas also take the floor Friday, as Indiana plays at 4:10 p.m. ET, while Kansas plays in the graveyard-shift game that tips off just before 10 p.m. ET.
