If you were unfortunate enough to miss out on the eventful Friday action that was the first day of the first round of the 2021 NCAA Tournament, don’t worry because a full docket of 16 more awaits on Saturday as the NCAA Tournament bracket slowly gets filled in. The Big Dance is always full of surprises, and this has already been a wild one.
Friday brought an upset victory for No. 15 seed Oral Roberts, which took down No. 2 seed Ohio State in overtime. No. 7 seed Florida also beat No. 10 seed Virginia Tech in an overtime game. So with that as the backdrop, Saturday arrives with plenty more good storylines in store.
The other half of the bracket is in action on Saturday with 16 games on the docket. However, the final game expected to tip in the first round — No. 7 seed Oregon vs. No. 10 seed VCU — has been declared a no contest due to positive COVID-19 tests within the Rams program. The Ducks advance to the second round to face the winner of No. 2 seed Iowa and No. 15 seed Grand Canyon.
So settle in, grab your remote and get ready for the long-awaited return of March Madness. All times Eastern
