March Madness 2021: How to watch every First Four and First Round game

March Madness 2021

Just over a year ago, I was writing an article about how the 2020 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament had been canceled due to the risk associated with the novel coronavirus pandemic. The untimely conclusions of the NBA and college basketball seasons were among the first signs that the virus was a serious threat, and a year later, we’re just now starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel as vaccines become widely available.

In the meantime, the college basketball season actually happened this year in spite of endless challenges in its way, and as a result, there will be March Madness this year. The timing has shifted slightly, but there will still be 68 college basketball teams competing for spots in the second round this weekend. It all starts on Thursday when the 16 seeds Texas Southern and Mount St. Mary’s face off in the first First Four game at 5:10 p.m. ET.
