March Madness 2021 live scores, results, highlights from Friday’s Round 1 NCAA Tournament games

Here it is, college basketball fans. March Madness is back.

It seems all the more precious this time around after COVID-19 forced the 2020 NCAA Tournament to be canceled — and made the 2020-21 season precarious, at best. But we’re finally here, and the payoff is a full slate of games: our first taste of March Madness since 2019.

Friday’s action tips off at 12:15 p.m. ET with 10-seed Virginia Tech taking on 7-seed Florida. The last game, likely, will be between 12-seed Winthrop and 5-seed Villanova. And there’s so much basketball to be enjoyed in between.

So fill out your brackets, pick your Cinderella players, sit back and relax. There’s basketball to watch. Here’s everything you need to keep up with the first NCAA Tournament action in nearly two years, including times, scores, highlights and more:
