The Final Four of the 2022 NCAA Tournament is just days away, with 68 teams soon to be whittled down to the national semifinalists. March Madness got started in Dayton, Ohio on Tuesday, March 15th, and the national champion will be crowned a little less than three weeks later on April 4th in The Big Easy.

The Final Four is set to take place on Saturday, April 2nd, with a doubleheader of games to set the matchup for the final game. The first game will tip off at 6:00 p.m. ET, with the second following . Two days later, the national champion will be crowned on Monday, April 4th at 9:00 p.m. ET.

Last year’s Final Four participants were the Baylor Bears, Gonzaga Bulldogs, Houston Cougars and UCLA Bruins. Baylor was the defending champion following an 86-70 win over Gonzaga, but we’ll have a completely new foursome in 2022 as all four of last year’s teams have been eliminated.

Both the Final Four and national championship games will be played at the Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana, with all three contests airing on TBS.
