NCAA March Madness bracket: Full schedule, TV channels, scores for 2022 NCAAB Tournament games

489

The 2022 NCAA Tournament figures to be the most “normal” iteration of March Madness in several years.

That’s no indictment for this year’s tournament: Indeed, “normal” is more than welcome in the COVID-19 pandemic, a year after the 2021 NCAA Tournament was held with massive restrictions entirely in the state of Indiana and the 2020 NCAA Tournament was canceled entirely.

Besides, “normal” doesn’t mean this year’s NCAA Tournament has to be any less maddening.

What storylines will reveal themselves throughout the tournament? Mike Krzyzewski makes one final run at a sixth and final NCAA Tournament championship with the Blue Devils. Gonzaga will look for redemption after falling a game short of perfection in 2021. The SEC features several teams in the top four seed lines alone. And the Pac-12 will look to break through for its first national championship since Arizona won it all in 1997.

And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Regardless of what happens, The Sporting News will be here to guide you through it all — from times, dates, scores, highlights and more:
