NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament-First Round-Michigan vs Oklahoma State Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

We have the times for today’s NCAA Tournament games with announcers and TV channels - your handy guide to day’s action.

But first, about yesterday:

Tough loss for Villanova. But Wisconsin is a precise team and they exploited a Villanova team that was heavy on wings and guards - and one that won a championship last year shooting better in every game than most teams do. It was amazing and a testament to their confidence and skill, but they had vulnerabilities.

Some will talk about Wisconsin outcoaching Villanova. I might suggest it’s the other way around. Villanova was getting handled early, but adjusted to get the Wisconsin BadgersEthan Happ in foul trouble, adjusted defenses to force turnovers, and took a second half lead in a taut game. And then the players went cold.

I can’t hate on the effort. But given the defense played on both sides, sometimes the shots just don’t fall.

Though Donte DiVincenzo has made himself into a real player this season.

Second, Xavier and Butler are both going to the Sweet Sixteen. The Butler Bulldogs win was a mostly clinical demolition of a very good Middle Tennessee State team (late butterflies aside) and the Xavier Musketeers... wow. Pretty sure Florida State got to see their still beating heart held aloft by a sweaty J.P. Macura at some point in the game.

Today’s NCAA Tournament schedule

I’d pick the Oregon/ Rhode Island matchup as the best game to see today, but the Louisville/ Michigan game may have the most offensive fireworks.
