NCAA Women's Tournament 2024: Tip times, TV channels, dates, March Madness scores for the first round



The 2024 NCAA Women’s Tournament is off and running. Fans will now get to watch the top players in the nation compete for four days straight in the first and second rounds. Will South Carolina remain undefeated? What teams are on Cinderella watch? Who will be the next NCAA star to declare for the 2024 WNBA Draft?

There’s been plenty of drama already with two of the biggest comebacks in the tournament’s history happening on Friday. Plus, LSU got off to a rocky start but rallied late to take out a No. 14 seed Rice that gave it all it could handle. 

First-round action continues on Saturday with 16 more games on the slate. The most notable include No. 1 seed Iowa beginning its tournament journey against No. 16 seed Holy Cross. No. 1 seed USC is also set to begin its run when it takes on No. 16 seed Texas A&M Corpus Christi. Plus, No. 2 seed Notre Dame takes the court as one of the darkhorses to make a deep run when it takes on No. 15 seed Kent State. And No. 3 seed UConn is ready to return to the national spotlight when it takes on No. 14 seed Jackson State.

All this and more will unfold as we march toward the championship game in Cleveland on April 7. Until then, print out your bracket and enjoy the madness. Also check out fubo (try for free) to watch the action.
