March Madness 2015 Schedule: TV Info, Live Stream and Friday's 2nd-Round Picks

Published by Bleacher Report on Fri, 20 Mar 2015

With a fantastic day of second-round NCAA tournamentgames already in the books, there are still plenty of third-round spots to be determined as the final 16 round-of-64 matchups are contested Friday.There was no shortage of captivating moments Thursday, and there is reason to believe that trend will continue. College basketball fans don't have to miss a second of the action either, as they can follow along on CBS, TBS, TNT and truTV, or watch the live stream at March Madness Live.Here is a full rundown of when and where to catch every remaining round-of-64 game, along with a closer look at some of the most intriguing matchups on the schedule.Friday's NCAA Tournament Schedule and Viewing InfoUpdated BracketTop Games to WatchNo. 1 Duke vs. No. 16 Robert MorrisMany view Duke as perhaps the likeliest candidate to end Kentucky's undefeated season, but the Blue Devils must first get past No. 16 Robert Morris in the second round.There is no doubt that the Colonials have a large hill to climb, as no No. 16 seed has ever beaten a No. 1. Also, the Blue Devils rarely have any trouble in the round of 64 as a top seed, according to ESPN Stats & Info:Robert Morris isn't a run-of-the-mill No. 16 seed, though. The Colonials will enter the game with momentum after beating North Florida in the First Four, and they have a history of slaying Goliath when playing the role of David.Per ESPN Stats & Info, Robert Morris took down Kentucky in the NIT just a couple of years ago:The NCAA tournament is obviously a much different animal, but senior guard Lucky Jones believes his team has the potential to hang with the Blue Devils, according to Megan Ryan of thePittsburgh Post-Gazette."At the end of the day, it's a team game, no matter who they have on their team, no matter how many TV games they have," Jones said. "I love Robert Morris. ... We've just got to go out there and believe in ourselves. Have confidence, have fun and see what happens."Perhaps Jones is being overly optimistic, but based on how well so many underdogs performed Thursday, there is reason to believe. It won't be easy to compete with a Duke team that boasts a trio of fantastic freshmen in Jahlil Okafor, Justise Winslow and Tyus Jones, but the Colonials won't lay down.The Blue Devils can't afford to take Robert Morris lightly, and head coach Mike Krzyzewski has almost certainly made his team aware of that.No. 7 Wichita State vs. No. 10 IndianaOne year after having its perfect season ended in the round of 32, there is far less hype surrounding Wichita State as it enters the second round as a No. 7 seed against No. 10 Indiana.The Shockers had another spectacular campaign with just four losses, but they didn't get much love from the selection committee due to a somewhat weak schedule. Even so, Wichita State players such as star guard Fred VanVleet expected a better seed, according to Matt Trowbridge of theRockford Register Star:At the same time, many were surprised that the Hoosiers even made it into the field at all. Indiana was thought to be very much on the bubble, but it turned out that it was safely into the field. Despite going just 20-13 during the regular season, the Hoosiers could be a very dangerous team.They are young and athletic, and they have a couple of players who can take games over offensively in the form of Yogi Ferrell and James Blackmon Jr.While Indiana may be the more explosive team, Wichita State makes up for it with its experience in big-game situations, per Will Kunkel of KWCH12:If the Shockers find a way to win, it could set up a massive rivalry game against No. 2 Kansas in the round of 32. As fantastic as that would be, Wichita State has to be solely focused on the Hoosiers due to the fact that they have more than enough firepower to pull off the upset.From an overall quality perspective, the clash between Wichita State and Indiana may prove to be the closest and most entertaining game on Friday's slate.Follow @MikeChiari on Twitter
