March Madness schedule today: Times, channels, scores for Tuesday’s NCAA Tournament First Four games


Let the madness commence.

The conference tournaments are over and the 2022 NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament field is set. Well, almost completely set.

The First Four games will make official the 64 teams that will compete in the first round proper and begin a journey toward a national championship. While it might be easy to suggest these teams are the ones that just barely reached the tournament and are thus destined for an early exit, that is far from the case.

Last year, UCLA reached the Final Four. In 2018, Michigan State reached the Sweet 16, as did Tennessee in 2014. VCU made a wild run to the Final Four in 2011 after winning in the First Four.

First Four action tips off on Tuesday and continues Wednesday. Here’s a look at how to watch those games, including final scores from the matchups.

What channel is truTV?

The NCAA in April 2010 reached a 14-year, $10.8 billion deal with CBS and Turner Broadcasting Systems to give both networks broadcasting rights to the tournament (a deal that now extends through 2032).

Here’s what that means for college basketball fans: Turner Sports — a subsidiary of WarnerMedia’s entertainment division — will broadcast the majority of the NCAA Tournament on one of three stations: TBS, TNT and, of course, truTV.

Below is where you can find the latter of those three channels:

Provider Channel (SD/HD)
AT&T UVerse 164/1164
Verizon FIOS 183/683
DISH Network 242
DirecTV 246
Spectrum Varies by location (area code search)
Xfinity Varies by location (area code search)
