NCAA Tournament Sunday Round 2: Game times, TV channels, odds for March Madness
After showing out on Friday, the remaining teams in the NCAA Tournament who have yet to play in the Round of 32 are ready to roll.
For the second time in tournament history, a 16-seed defeated a 1-seed. It felt like all eyes were on Columbus as Fairleigh Dickinson pulled off a stunner, knocking off Purdue 63-58 to advance to Sunday’s Round of 32. The Knights now join UMBC in 2018 as the only No. 16 seeds to defeat a No. 1 seed, and Sunday will mark FDU’s third game of the tournament. Remember, the Knights played in the First Four Wednesday night in Dayton — an 84-61 win over Texas Southern.
Fairleigh Dickinson will face Florida Atlantic after the Owls fought off Memphis in the final seconds. Nick Boyd made the game-winning layup with two seconds to play, and the Tigers failed to get a shot off before the final buzzer. That means it’ll be FDU vs. FAU in the second round.
There was plenty more action on Friday that will take us into Sunday’s events, as two No. 14 seeds took No. 3 seeds down to the wire. Baylor survived a bit of a scare against UC Santa Barbara and Xavier managed to fight off Kennesaw State to advance on their respective sides of the bracket to move on to the next round. One more double-digit seed — No. 11 Pitt — notched a victory by defeating Iowa State as the Cyclones struggled mightily from the floor, shooting just 23.3% overall and 9.5% from three-point distance.
With a spot in the Sweet 16 on the line, here are the game times, television channels and odds for Sunday’s games.
