NCAA Mens Basketball Tournament 2021: East region matchups, schedule & more

Michigan is the top seed in the East Region of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament and like Gonzaga will have to wait later in the week to find out who they play.

Mount St. Mary’s and Texas Southern will face-off in the First Four round with the winner going to play the Wolverines. Michigan is one of two top seeds who didn’t win their conference tournament.

Alabama, Texas and Florida State are seeds Nos. 2-4 in the region. BYU will await the winner of Michigan State and UCLA in their First Four matchup.

Though Michigan in the East region, all games will be played in Indiana as part of the NCAA’s coronavirus precautions. The first-round games are March 19 and 20. The East region games will begin March 20. Individual game times have yet to be determined.
