About 2023 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament First Four

The First Four consists of two games played between the four teams with the lowest rankings in the field, and two games played between the four “at-large” teams in the field with the lowest seeds. While all of these squads have already made the Big Dance, the games serve as a bit of an appetizer to kick off the tournament, which starts in earnest on Thursday.

The eight teams competing in this year’s First Four are Southeast Missouri State, Texas A&M-Corpus Christi, Pitt, Mississippi State, Farleigh Dickinson, Texas Southern, Nevada, and Arizona State. Check below for a schedule of the First Four games to see when you can catch them in action!
