2016 NCAA Basketball Tournament Final Four Schedule

The 2016 NCAA Basketball Tournament is nearing its end with just four teams left to this point. The tournament may be close to over, but some of the action will live on for many years (Northern Iowa’s win over Texas and collapse against Texas A&M are just two examples).

Here are the results of First Four, First RoundSecond RoundSweet 16, and Elite 8. An updated Bracket can be found here.

The three remaining games will all take place at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas with the National Semifinals on Saturday evening and the National Championship on Monday night. The final three games will all be on TBS, the first time the National Championship game will not be shown on CBS in 35 years. The National Championship will return to CBS in 2017 and alternate between the two channels through 2024.

The Villanova Wildcats and Oklahoma Sooners will play in the first game of the Final Four while the all-ACC battle between the Syracuse Orange and North Carolina Tar Heels will be the nightcap on Saturday evening.
