March Madness bracket: Full schedule, TV channels, scores for 2023 NCAA Tournament games

2023 March Madness printable clip

Is this the most open NCAA tournament in recent memory?

The usual suspects are still there, yes — the likes of Kansas and Gonzaga will never leave the picture — but traditional powers like Duke and Kentucky didn’t seem like the world champions of years past.

The top of the college basketball rankings was also riddled with losses all season. Some of the country’s top teams lost games in the final month of the regular season. This NCAA tournament could really show how crazy March can be.

That’s not even including the storylines that will dominate this year’s tournament, including whether Bill Self’s Kansas squad can become the first repeat champion since Florida won repeat titles in 2006 and 2007. The Gators ousted Duke, who won back-to-back championships in 1991 and 1992.

Speaking of the Blue Devils, Jon Scheyer will be coaching his first NCAA tournament since replacing the legendary Coach K – his team’s performance will be of great interest across the country. Could he become the first freshman coach since Michigan’s Steve Fisher in 1989 to lead an NCAA tournament title run?

On the West Coast, Mick Cronin’s UCLA team – soon to be making the Big Ten – will seek to become the first Pac-12 team to win the NCAA tournament since Arizona in 1997. Remaining in the Pacific time zone, Drew Timme will have one final ride with Gonzaga while Mark Few seeks to win his first NCAA tournament title after narrowly missing in 2017 and 2021.

Then there’s the Crimson Tide, whose March Madness run will include a cloud over the team after it was revealed that all-American talent Brandon Miller is linked to a mid-January shooting that led to a murder charge against the former Teammate Darius Miles led.
