Time: 12:10 PM EST

The first of the March Madness games today features two extremely talented teams. Both schools easily handled their First Round opponents. However, there are questions about both. Will Baylor be able to overcome their injuries? Is North Carolina capable of playing consistent basketball? We shall see.

Kansas vs Creighton

No. 1 Kansas Jayhawks (29-6) vs. No. 9 Creighton Bluejays (23-11)
Date: Saturday, March 19, 2022

The top seed in the Midwest Region will look to avoid an upset on Saturday afternoon. Kansas is the vastly superior team in this college basketball matchup, but they call it March Madness for a reason. This game could have the largest point differential of the day.

Tennessee vs Michigan

No. 3 Tennessee Volunteers (27-7) vs. No. 11 Michigan Wolverines (18-14)
Date: Saturday, March 19, 2022
Time: 5:15 PM EST
Venue: Gainbridge Fieldhouse — Indianapolis, IN
Coverage: CBS

Many didn’t believe Michigan deserved to make the NCAA Tournament, but they remain alive in the Round of 32. They face the suffocating defense of Tennessee today. Hopefully Rick Barnes is careful, because Juwan Howard is known to make a scene when games don’t go his way.

Providence vs Richmond

No. 4 Providence Friars (26-5) vs. No. 12 Richmond Spiders (24-12)
Date: Saturday, March 19, 2022
Time: 5:15 PM EST
Venue: KeyBank Center — Buffalo, NY
Coverage: TNT

This is one of the more interesting March Madness games today on the schedule. Providence has been solid all season long, though some are surprised they are still alive. On the other side, Richmond pulled off a classic 12-over-5 upset in the First Round, knocking off the Iowa Hawkeyes. Does Providence have what it takes to kill these Spiders?

UCLA vs Saint Mary’s

No. 4 UCLA Bruins (26-7) vs. No. 5 Saint Mary’s Gaels (26-7)
Date: Saturday, March 19, 2022
Time: 7:10 PM EST
Venue: Moda Center — Portland, OR
Coverage: TBS

This West Coast matchup features a UCLA team that made a deep tournament run last year and a Saint Mary’s squad that has been dangerous all season long. We should see lots of points in this March Madness game.

Murray State vs Saint Peter’s

No. 7 Murray State Racers (31-2) vs. No. 15 Saint Peter’s Peacocks (20-11)
Date: Saturday, March 19, 2022
Time: 7:45 PM EST
Venue: Gainbridge Fieldhouse — Indianapolis, IN
Coverage: CBS

In the most unlikely matchup of the March Madness games today, we get Murray State vs Saint Peter’s! While the Racers were expected to be here, it came down to the final seconds in the First Round. On the other side, the Peacocks from Saint Peter’s won the David vs Goliath matchup against Kentucky! How far can these Peacocks fly?

Arkansas vs New Mexico State

No. 4 Arkansas Razorbacks (26-8) vs. No. 12 New Mexico State Aggies (27-6)
Date: Saturday, March 19, 2022
Time: 8:40 PM EST
Venue: 
KeyBank Center — Buffalo, NY
Coverage: 
TNT

Arkansas survived against a trendy Vermont squad in the First Round, while New Mexico State road a big performance from Teddy Allen to an upset win over UConn. While the Aggies will likely need more than their star player to step up on offense for them to win, “Teddy Bucket” is must-watch television regardless of the result.

Gonzaga vs Memphis

No. 1 Gonzaga Bulldogs (27-3) vs. No. 9 Memphis Tigers (22-10)
Date: Saturday, March 19, 2022
Time: 9:40 PM EST
Venue: 
Moda Center — Portland, OR
Coverage: 
TBS

In the last of our March Madness games today, we get a battle between two very talented schools in the East Region. Gonzaga is the top overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, though they had a tough time in the First Round. Memphis is talented enough to beat anyone, but they always seem to get in their own way.

This game is an awesome one to end our evening of college basketball games today.
