NCAA Tournament March Madness 2022 LIVE : NCAA Tournament Schedule
Has March Madness 2022 already reached its zenith? What kind of progress have you made so far in your tournament bracket? First-round NCAA tournament games on Thursday saw No. 15 seed Saint Peter’s knock out No. 2 seed Kentucky. Both Iowa and UConn were beaten by No. 12 seeds, Richmond and New Mexico State.
As expected, Gonzaga and Baylor breezed through their first games, while Tennessee and North Carolina smashed their opponents.
Jabari Smith, a highly touted NBA draught prospect, and Auburn, the No. 2 seed, cruised past Jacksonville State with relative ease. Mike Krzyzewski’s final NCAA tournament as Duke’s head coach begins later. Playing against Cal State Fullerton are the No. 2 seeded Blue Devils.
The Chattanooga Titans’ game against Illinois will have a distinguished guest list in attendance.
Legendary Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Terrell Owens showed up to cheer on his alma mater by shaking hands with the squad before the game. According to the school’s website, Owens represented the Mocs in football from 1992 to 1995 and also earned two varsity letters in basketball.

Miami, the No. 10 seed, and USC, the No. 7 seed, had a back-and-forth battle. Charlie Moore’s two crucial free throws gave the Hurricanes a 68-66 victory over the Trojans in the final minutes. Despite fouling out late in the game, guard Isaiah Wong led the team in scoring with 22 points.
It’s been a good night for Texas guard Andrew Jones, who has scored 17 points and made five of six 3-pointers in the first half against Virginia Tech. There were only two other Longhorns who had hit a three-ball before the half. Last-second heaves from beyond half court by Marcus Carr are one of two examples.
Chevez Goodwin is in luck this year because his USC Trojans are playing in Greenville, South Carolina, and his family hails from Columbia. Even though the Miami Hurricanes take on the University of Florida just a few hours away, they’re out in force in support of him.
