2022 NCAA Tournament Schedule: March Madness Bracket, Venues, Game Dates, TV Tips Times

It’s been nearly three years since the last “normal” NCAA tournament was held in 2019, and a lot has changed in the sport of college basketball since then. After the 2020 Big Dance was canceled amid the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 event was held in a controlled environment with limited attendance.

Finally, finally, the bracket is set for a 2022 NCAA tournament that should be a nice reminder of everything that makes March Madness so great. Preliminary matches will be played at venues across the country, with full participation allowed and less worry about health and safety protocols.

With Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski entering his final NCAA Tournament after missing last season’s event and Kentucky also back in the Big Dance after a rare offseason, there’s plenty of blue blood power up close. from the top of the fork. Arizona being the No. 1 seed under first-year coach Tommy Lloyd is another perfect example.

There are also some incredible potential Cinderella teams to watch, like No. 14 seed Longwood making his first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance and those ever-pesky Loyola-Chicago Ramblers, who landed a No. ° 10.
