The 2023 NCAA Tournament will begin with the unveiling of the 68-team bracket with Selection Sunday on Sunday, March 12, 2023.

Two days after Greg Gumbel hosts the selection show on CBS at 6 p.m. on March 12, the First Four will tip off in Dayton, which was the only city that returned as a host in 2022 after losing games in 2021.

Dayton has hosted the first games of March Madness each year since the initial play-in format was established in 2001. 

Columbus is also scheduled to host games, making Ohio only of only two states with two host cities. New York is the other; Albany will host first- and second-round games and New York City will host the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight at Madison Square Garden. It will be the Garden’s first tourney games since 2017.

Here’s the full 2023 NCAA Tournament schedule, starting with Selection Sunday on March 12 and ending with the Final Four in Houston on April 2 and 4:
