Merry Madness! They don’t call it March Madness for nothing – and Madness is exactly what it was. Sixteen teams punched their tickets through to the round of 32, while the other 16 saw their hopes and dreams of raising that national championship die with the sound of the final buzzer.

The madness came in the form of upsets – two of them were the No. 14 seed over the No. 3 seed as Georgia State topped Baylor in the West region and UAB knocked off Iowa State in the South bracket.

And NCAA Tournament history was made today, March 19, as well. The majority of the games came down to the wire, in fact, there were five games decided by just 1 point, which is the most ever in a single day in the tournament. Those games included Cincinnati over Purdue, 66-65, UAB over Iowa State, 60-59, UCLA over SMU, 60-59, and NC State over LSU, 66-65.

What’s even crazier is it’s just Day 1 and there’s plenty more games to be had.

Keep up with the latest bracket throughout the tournament as we’ll be updating as the games progress. In the meantime, here’s all the info you need including a printable bracket and full schedule complete with times, TV channels and broadcasters:

And for the eight winners, it’s another quick turnaround. The Elite Eight games put Thursday’s winners back into action and the winners from Friday hit the hardwood again on Sunday. The four teams coming out of the Elite Eight round are considered regional champs.

Saturday, April 4 – Sunday, April 5 – Final Four at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Indiana
