World news – 2021 NCAA Men’s Tournament Schedule, Day 1, Recaps


March Madness 2021 officially began with the first four games on Thursday, won by Texas Southern, Drake, Norfolk State and UCLA. But the first full day of fun is Friday. 16 men’s games make up a packed day. This is also the first day of big dance since Virginia was crowned champion nearly two years ago.

Sports Illustrated will keep you updated with final results and brief recaps of all 16 games all over the state throughout Friday Indiana and begin at 12:15 p.m. ET. Who will advance to the second round and keep the hope of a long stay in Indianapolis upright?

The action on Friday started with an overtime thriller at the famous Hinkle Fieldhouse. After leaving most of the game behind, the Gators gave their first lead after an important 7-0 run in almost 30 minutes of game action behind several key games by the great man Colin Castleton (19 points, 14 rebounds, three blocks). But the Hokies struggled and forced overtime with those late three from Nahiem Alleyne.

Florida sprinted out of the gates in extra time with an absurd dunk from Anthony Duruji. Meanwhile, Hokie’s star Big Man messed up Keve Aluma, forcing head coach Mike Young to sit on his bench late. VT stayed tough, but Florida’s Tre Mann gave less than 30 seconds to seal the win. – Kevin Sweeney

The Razorbacks eventually pulled back on a brave, angry offer from Colgate, which led by up to 14 points in the first half as it tried to shoot past Arkansas with the third seed. After blowing out that lead before half time, the Raiders moved forward again in the second half before a JD Notae three-pointer gave the Razorbacks a head start they wouldn’t give up. In the end, the athleticism of Arkansas and Justin Smith’s outstanding indoor game (29 points, 13 rebounds, five steals, two blocks) were too much for Colgate. The highlight of the game, however, could have been this clever, football-inspired support from Davonte Davis of the Hogs. – Molly Geary

The first number 1 in action had no problems as the Illinois sent the dragons off after an even hit with 29 points. Brad Underwood’s club had six players who scored eight or more points, including 17 points, 10 rebounds and six assists for Ayo Dosunmu. Illinois led with up to 33 players and did not lag behind the CAA champions in the last 33:28 of the game action. Drexel only shot 30.6% off the field in the defeat. —KS

What was billed as a defensive battle played out on the pitch in such a way that Chris Beard’s Red Raiders got the upper hand thanks to an even goal from Mac McClung and a brisk team effort at D. Tech -for-18 from three and flipped them 22 times, fatal mistakes the state of Utah could not overcome. The 7-footer Neemias Queta from the US state of Utah showed a solid defeat and flirted with a triple double with 11 points, 13 rebounds, seven blocks and five assists. —M.G.

The Bears made a slow start to pass the Hawks, behind a strong game by MaCio Teague, who made four threes and finished with 22 points. Baylor’s defense posted a whopping 15 steals on the way to 24 Hartford turnovers, keeping the Hawks down to just 55 points that day. —M.G.

For the ninth time, a No. 15 seed has cut off a No. 2 seed! Oral Roberts secured his first NCAA tournament victory since 1974 with an overtime win over the state of Ohio. Fifty-nine of ORU’s 75 points were scored by just two players, security guard Max Abmas and tall man Kevin Obanor. Abmas and Obanor just didn’t let the Golden Eagles lose and fought back after Ohio State had a four point lead 2:34 to force overtime. There Obanor scored the first five points from OT and the dynamic duo scored all but one point from ORU in the additional session to get their first 15-2 surprises in five years. —K.S.

In the presence of Sister Jean, the Ramblers took on Illinois by overcoming a tough offensive start against the Yellow Jackets, who lacked the star center Moses Wright. After wrestling control at halftime, Loyola Chicago didn’t look back when she scored the 11-point win. It was a big day for senior Lucas Williamson, who scored 21 goals and played an excellent defense to lead his team to the first round win. —M.G.

Ah, the classic 12-5 surprise. After the Beavers took the Pac-12 tournament by storm to steal a bid, the good times continued against Tennessee. The State of Oregon celebrated its first victory in the men’s NCAA tournament in 39 years. He got off to a flying start against the Vols and never looked back. After John Fulkerson paused, Beavers Center Roman Silva had a field day on which he came off the field perfectly with 8 to 8 points and scored 16 points at game height.
