Championship Week is upon us, and by Sunday, we’ll know the full field for the 2021 NCAA men’s basketball tournament. In the meantime, there are automatic bids to be clinched and bubble cases to be improved during Championship Week — the week almost every conference conducts their postseason tournaments.
The first round tips on Wednesday and it runs until the championship game on Saturday, March 13th. The Pac-12 Network is airing most of the first two rounds of the tournament and the first semifinal game of the tournament. ESPN will air the final game of the quarterfinals and semifinals and then, ultimately, the Pac-12 Conference Championship game on March 13th.
If you aren’t around a TV to follow the tournament, you can stream it through WatchESPN. For most of the first two rounds, you’ll need a specific Pac-12 Network subscription. For the remaining rounds, a regular cable subscription that includes ESPN will get you access. If you don’t have a cable login to access Pac-12 Network and/or ESPN for the live stream, you can get a free trial from YouTube TV, Hulu with Live TV, AT&T TV Now, FuboTV, or Sling TV to stream the tournament.
Here’s what the full tournament schedule looks like, as well as what channel each game airs on.
