Time to find out what channel TruTV is on again. The tournament technically starts today (please don’t call it the first round) with the following two play-in games in Dayton, Ohio.

  • LIU Brooklyn vs Radford -4.5 (6:40 p.m. ET | TRUtv)
  • St. Bonaventure vs. UCLA -3.5 (9:10 p.m. ET | TRUtv)




The first matchup will decide who has the right to lose to Villanova, while the winner of the second could make a little noise, starting with Florida in the real first round. Let’s dive into both matchups to see which teams have the advantage tonight.
