Milwaukee is hosting the NCAA men’s tourney for the sixth time, and the first since 2004.
Four opening-round games are on tap today at the Bradley Center. 11th-seeded Minnesota kicks things off late this morning against number-six Xavier. The Gophers earned their bid largely by their second-place showing in last weekend’s Big Ten Tournament.
In the day’s second game, third-seeded Pittsburgh plays number-14 Oakland. Tonight, number-seven Oklahoma State takes on 10th-seeded Georgia Tech. And number-two Ohio State will wrap up the day against 15th-seeded California-Santa Barbara.
Today’s winners will advance to the second round on Sunday.
