March Madness 2023 live updates — News, stats, takeaways and more from the first round of the men’s NCAA tournament

After Thursday’s first-round games brought 15-over-2 and 13-over-4 upsets, how will Friday follow it up?

There’s no shortage of upset candidates. First Four winners Pitt and Arizona State carry momentum into games against Iowa State (3:10 p.m. ET) and TCU (10:05 p.m. ET), respectively, while Drake (vs. Miami, 7:25 p.m. ET) and Kent State (vs. Indiana, 9:55 p.m. ET) are popular upset picks. Iona takes on UConn (4:30 p.m. ET) and VCU, which knows a thing or two about Cinderella, is going against Saint Mary’s (2 p.m. ET).

And will today be the last game for Rick Pitino (Iona) and Ed Cooley (Providence) at their respective schools?
