The First Four is over, so now it’s time for the real NCAA tournament to begin. Thursday is packed with 16 games starting at 12:15 p.m. ET, with the last tipping off at 9:55 p.m. ET. It’s a FULL DAY of college hoops.

The first day is stacked with a ton of talent, especially at the start of the first tip-off. Trae Young, possibly the national player of the year, will get things going for the Oklahoma Sooners in a No. 10-No. 7 battle with Rhode Island. Also featured throughout the day are NBA lottery hopefuls in Duke’s Marvin Bagley III and Wendell Carter, Alabama’s hero Collin Sexton, Kentucky’s Kevin Knox, Villanova’s Mikal Bridges, and more.
