The NCAA women’s basketball tournament is officially underway and we’re just about finished with the second round. The tournament tipped off on Sunday, March 21 and the second round comes to a close on Wednesday the 24th.

We get a quick pivot to the Sweet 16, with the first games tipping off on Saturday the 27th. The quick turnaround comes in part because the tournament is being played entirely in San Antonio due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The first two rounds were played at four sites around San Antonio, but as we move into the Sweet 16, everything moves to the Alamodome the rest of the way.

The Sweet 16 will take place on Saturday, March 27 and Sunday, March 28. The games will be split across ABC, ESPN, and ESPN2. Since ABC and ESPN are all part of the same umbrella, you can watch the entire tournament via live stream at WatchESPN or through the ESPN app. You need a cable log-in for access, so if you don’t have such a login, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV.

Below is the complete list of Sweet 16 start times and TV channels for the 2021 NCAA Tournament. As always, feel free to check out the current March Madness odds at DraftKings Sportsbook.
