March Madness will include 4 first-round games
Question of the Day
The NCAA said there could be games on both Tuesday and Wednesday of the tournament’s opening week. The Tuesday winners would play Thursday and the Wednesday winners would play Friday.
Athletic director Skip Perkins, whose Arkansas-Pine Bluff team won last season’s tournament opener, said he thought the committee came up with a good solution. He also offered a suggestion on scheduling.
“I would hope that it would never be two play-in games at one time,” Perkins said. “I would at least hope that out of those four, that each would have their own life.”
Locations for the first-round games have not been determined. Dayton, Ohio, which has hosted the early game since 2001, is under consideration to host each of the first four games.
