MARCH MADNESS 2021: First Four & Opening Round Matchups For Your Hoyas and More!

A quick reference guide with TV times & networks to plan your life around the tournament

Your Georgetown Hoyas are going dancing!!!

There will be additional team-focused coverage forth coming (...obviously...), and the resurrection of the Casual Bracket Challenge, but to get the week kicked off right — here’s a one-stop shop for figuring out which teams will be in action and on what network during those hectic opening days of the NCAA Tournament.

Of BIG EAST interest, Villanova will play in the final game of the slate on Friday night, while both Creighton and UCONN will join the Hoyas in action on Saturday, with those two schools being assigned to slots later that afternoon/evening.

March Madness is a wonderful time of year, and between the Hoyas’ incredible run through the BIG EAST Tournament plus the cancellation of the entire event last year, it is only reasonable that you might want to savor every moment.

PSA: Remember that you need to figure out where TruTV is located.
