NCAA Tournament 2017: Friday TV schedule & open thread

Day two of NCAA Tournament action begins at 12:15 p.m. ET.

NCAA Basketball: Duke at Syracuse Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The NCAA Tournament rolls on without the Syracuse Orange, but we’re still ready to enjoy the event, just like we typically do. After a fun collection of close games yesterday, the action resumes at 12:15 p.m. ET today.

Below, is your schedule for the afternoon and evening. And some reading materials from TNIAAM to get prepared for the amount of basketball you’re about to watch. While you’re watching, be sure to check in on our bracket challenge. We’ll be posting a standings update after round one wraps up.

Assuming you’re torn on who to root for/against in this year’s tourney, we have some ideas for you there. Also, Aaron and I created another beer bracket, so plan accordingly over the course of the next few weeks.

Oh, and if you’re looking to stream the games because you’re stuck at work, the NCAA (for once) has you covered.
