We run down the full schedule of college basketball for Friday, March 12th. Two games have been canceled due to COVID-19.

The NCAA Tournament is a week away, and that means we’re fast approaching the end of Championship Week. 11 automatic bids have been handed out thus far, and the rest will arrive on Saturday and Sunday. Several of those championship game matchups are set, but most will be finalized with semifinal contests on Friday and Saturday.

Friday had 28 semifinals scheduled coming into the day. However, we’ve had two of those games canceled due to positive COVID-19 tests. Virginia had to forfeit their ACC semifinal against Georgia Tech and North Carolina A&T had to forfeit their MEAC semifinal against Norfolk State. Georgia Tech advances to the title game to face the winner of North Carolina vs. Florida State. Norfolk State advances to the title game to face the winner of Morgan State and Coppin State.

That leaves us with 26 semifinals and 12 quarterfinal contests. Maryland and Michigan tip things off at 11:30 a.m. on the Big Ten Network in a quarterfinal contest. The evening wraps with a pair of 11:59 p.m. ET tips including a big West semifinal between UC Riverside vs. UC Irvine on ESPNU and a Mountain West semifinal between Colorado State and Utah State on CBS Sports Network.

Here is the complete rundown of Friday’s conference tournament schedule, including times and TV channels.
