KSiteTV has compiled the schedule for every first four play-in game and every first round matchup in the 2019 Men's NCAA Tournament. 2019 NCAA Tournament First Round Schedule

Perhaps the most exciting time of the sporting year is the NCAA tournament, when 68 basketball teams are placed in a four-quadrant bracket with the end goal of winning a national title. The bracket consists of every conference tournament champion as well as 30+ at-large teams who the selection committee deemed strong enough to enter the field. With the bracket released on Sunday and the first games already coming up tomorrow, we at KSiteTV decided to offer up the schedule for the first four play-in games and every first round matchup.

As with previous years, coverage is split across Turner cable networks TNT, TBS, and truTV, with CBS the lone broadcast network fielding games. The schedule is divided by network and the start time of every second game is determined by when the first finishes.
