2024 NCAA men’s tournament scores, games, updates: Follow Friday’s March Madness action live



The Madness continues Friday with a full slate of action on the men’s side as the other 32 teams vie for a spot in the second round.


The early window was pretty well chalk before a wild finish to Colorado-Florida and Yale-Auburn late in the afternoon.
