The remaining No. 2 seeds will play on Friday. Will any of those games result in a No. 15 over No. 2 upset like Thursday did? Kentucky’s loss on Thursday marked the second consecutive year that a No. 2 seed lost to a No. 15 in the first round of the NCAA tournament, after Ohio State’s loss to Oral Roberts in 2021. 

Only one more No. 1 seed, Arizona, has yet to play in the first round. So far, No. 1 seeds haven’t had much trouble advancing in the tournament, although Gonzaga did struggle in the first half against Georgia State on Thursday before ultimately winning by 21 points.

Friday’s action begins at 12:15 p.m. ET with No. 10 Loyola Chicago taking on No. 7 Ohio State.
