What you need to know for Friday.

NCAA Basketball: NCAA Tournament Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

After a fairly pedestrian start to the NCAA Tournament on Thursday, history tells us Friday might just get wild. Let’s just hope the Tennessee Volunteers stay out of the madness.

Friday will begin with Cincinnati vs. Iowa. The winner will advance to play the winner of Tennessee-Colgate, so we’ll be paying close attention to that one. Tennessee will take the floor shortly after that game ends in Columbus.

Below is the full schedule for Friday, along with commentators and TV channels for each game.
