March Madness bracket update: Scores and schedule from 2024 men’s NCAA tournament


The 2024 men’s NCAA tournament is underway, and it only took a few hours for the madness of March to take hold. One favored team, No. 6 seed BYU, has already been knocked by out by No. 11 seed Duquesne. There will be so much more where that came from.

Elsewhere in the men’s tournament, No. 9 Michigan State blasted No. 8 Mississippi State, 69-51. Tom Izzo’s team started off in the top-5 of the preseason polls, but their uneven season put them on the bubble heading into Selection Sunday. This legitimately might have been the best game the Spartans played all year, and it should set up a showdown with No. 1 seed North Carolina on Saturday in the round of 32.

Duquesne’s win is the program’s first in the NCAA tournament since 1969. The Dukes had not even appeared in March Madness since 1977. Duquesne’s coach Keith Dambrot — who coached LeBron James in high school at St. Vincent-St. Mary’s — is retiring after this season is over. Duquesne finished sixth in the Atlantic-10, but made a Cinderella run in the conference tournament to secure an unlikely bid to March Madness. Their story keeps getting better.

We’ll be keeping track of the results and upcoming schedule for every game in the 2024 men’s NCAA tournament. All times are Eastern.
